The Fourth of July holiday period is one of the deadliest times of the year for drunk driving crashes. From 2016 to 2020, 1,390 drivers lost their lives in motor vehicle traffic crashes over the Fourth of July holiday period. In Nevada, it is unlawful to drive with a concentration of alcohol of .08 or more in your blood or breath.
Do the following to make the roads safer this holiday:
- Leave your keys at home. Do not drive to any location where you plan on drinking alcohol. Ride with a friend or use a rideshare.
- Make it safe for everyone. Offer to be a designated driver.
- Do not tolerate risky driving behaviors. Discuss the risks of drunk driving with friends in advance.
- Make a plan. Make sure you know how you are going to get home safely if you plan to drink. This may include using a rideshare, taking a taxi, or getting a ride from a friend.
- Look out for drunk drivers. If you suspect an impaired driver, do not engage. Try to make a note of the vehicle’s license plate number and driving direction. Then contact 911. Your actions could save a life.
If you are injured in an accident and suspect that the driver is drunk, contact the police and get medical help immediately. Let the police know that you suspect the other driver is impaired. Once you’ve received medical care, contact Anthem Injury Lawyers for assistance with handling the details of your drunk driving accident case.

Only Use “Safe and Sane” Fireworks
The Fourth of July is often synonymous with fireworks. Unfortunately, fireworks are dangerous and cause thousands of injuries every year. During the 2021 calendar year, fireworks were involved with an estimated 11,500 injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments.
In Clark County, approved fireworks are only permitted from June 28, 2022 through July 4, 2022. Approved fireworks are “safe and sane” fireworks and include the following:
- Fireworks that keep to a small, circular area on the ground and don’t explode in the air
Do not use any of the following fireworks:
- Roman candles
- Sky rockets
- Cherry bombs
When you are using fireworks it is important to practice safe fireworks preparation, use, and disposal. This involves always supervising fireworks use and never using fireworks while intoxicated. It also means having water available in case of a fire.
Regrettably, even the most cautious person can be injured in an accident. If you or a loved one are injured in a fireworks accident due to the fault of someone else, contact Anthem Injury Lawyers. Anthem Injury Lawyers is a team of experienced Las Vegas personal injury lawyers. We offer you decades of case experience where we have won top compensation for our clients.
