HAMMOND – Many of us love to celebrate our Independence Day with family, friends, food and fire-works. Unfortunately, alcohol has the ability to turn holiday celebrations in to a tragedy. Historically, the 4th of July is one of the most deadly days of the year on our roadways.
Drinking and driving, and/or boating, are a deadly combination. Deputies will be out in force through¬out this Independence Day, on the look¬out for motorists/boaters who have had too much alcohol to be behind the wheel of a vehicle/boat. These drivers put themselves and others at risk.
“Those who try to drink and drive this Fourth of July should be forewarned. We will be out in force looking for impaired drivers and we will catch and arrest you. No warning. No excuses. If you drive impaired, you will be arrested,” said Sheriff Edwards.
Remember: If you know someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely.
Wishing everyone a safe and blessed 4th of July!
