Geneseo PD offers tips for safe Fourth of July
Most Americans may not realize that the Fourth of July is one of the deadliest holidays of the year due to alcohol-impaired driving crashes.
That’s why this Fourth of July, the Geneseo Police Department is stepping up enforcement efforts as part of the ongoing “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” enforcement crackdown to catch and arrest impaired drivers who put themselves and others at risk.
The GPD recommends these simple tips for a safe Fourth of July:
— Plan a safe way home before the fun begins.
— Before drinking, designate a sober driver.
— If you’re impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation.
— If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, don’t hesitate to contact 911.
— 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.
