Happy Independence Day

Safety Tips

Increased patrols for drunk driving and aggressive driving are expected in all areas. Please drive with caution and if you choose to celebrate today with a drink make sure you have a designated driver to take you home.

Ensure your vehicle is properly maintained. Vehicles often break down due to the extreme temperatures this time of year. Remember to check the tread on your tires since the heat from the pavement can cause blowouts.

If you break down or have a minor collision, pull as far off the roadway as possible, activate emergency flashers and call 911.
Remember distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving. All distractions endanger driver, passenger, and bystander safety. These types of distractions include:

  • Texting
  • Using a cell phone or smartphone
  • Eating and drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Grooming
  • Reading, including maps
  • Using a navigation system
  • Watching a video
  • Adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3 player

NOTE: New text messaging law are now active in Virginia as of July 1st. Virginia has made it a traffic infraction punishable by a $125 fine for any driver caught text messaging while driving.
