I saw three people pulled over on the interstate in a very short period of time today and this is just the first day of the holiday weekend. You know those people are not having a great start to their fourth of July festivities.

Police are watching closely especially during this holiday weekend because it has some pretty high numbers of fatalities attached to prior years. A main focus is drinking and driving but you can be sure that they will also be watching for speeding, driving without your seatbelt on and many other infractions.

Before you head out on any road trips, even if it is just for errands in town, be sure to check your tail lights, blinkers and even that little light that is on your license plate. Buckle up and drive the speed limit. Be safe out there!
