AAA Michigan provides 7 tips on driving safe and sober this Fourth of July
Highest number of travelers in Michigan in 18 years of tracking from AAA
DEARBORN, Mich. – The American Automobile Association (AAA) is predicting that more than 1.5 million Michigan residents will travel somewhere during the Fourth of July on Wednesday, the highest number of travelers expected since AAA began tracking these numbers 18 years ago.
It also predicts nearly 90 percent of those travelers will be driving a vehicle, and with that comes higher risks of car accidents. And with that comes a higher risk of people driving under the influence.
"Everyone deserves to have a safe Independence Day holiday," said Michigan public affairs director for AAA Susan Hiltz. "We urge travelers to make arrangements for safe transportation and to avoid driving impaired."
With all of that said, the auto club has put out seven tips on how to avoid drivers under the influence and how to have a safe day of traveling on the Fourth of July.
