Fourth of July weekend predicted to be deadliest in seven years

National Safety Council estimates 409 traffic deaths over the three-day weekend; goal is zero

NSC recommends the following tips for traveling safely this holiday:

  • Buckle up. The Council estimates 155 lives will be saved during this period because seat belts are worn. An additional 99 lives could be saved if all buckled up.
  • Reduce your speed. More speeding-related fatalities occur during the summer months than any other time of year.
  • Refrain from using cell phones– hands-free or handheld – when driving. Drivers talking on cell phones are up to four times as likely to crash.
  • Place children in age-appropriate safety seats. Child restraints saved an estimated 284 lives in 2012 among children younger than 5.
  • Don't drink and drive. If you do drink, designate a nondrinking driver or take an alternative form of transportation.
  • Stay engaged with your teens' driving habits. An NSC survey found many parents are more inclined to loosen household driving rules during the summer.  

The National Safety Council, Northern Ohio Chapter saves lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the roads, through leadership, education and advocacy.
