Don’t drink and drive

This Fourth of July, Americans will toast the country’s independence with friends, family and fireworks. Before celebrations begin, Capital Beverages reminds adults 21 and older to make a plan to make it home whenever alcohol is involved. Here are additional tips for safe celebrations during the holiday.

Buckle up — make sure everyone wears a seat belt on the road or a life jacket on the water.

Be an attentive driver — always be in control and aware of those around you.

Don’t speed — resist the urge to speed by making sure there’s plenty of time to reach your destination.

Drink responsibly — adults 21 and older who choose to drink should make responsible choices about when, where and how much.

Capital Beverages is committed to keeping our nation’s roadways and waterways safe. We offer programs to encourage the use of designated drivers and skippers.

Drunk driving is 100 percent preventable when we all do our part. Have a fun and safe holiday!
