Driving Safety Tips for July 4th Weekend

Pay attention more, speed less.

There are so many things people do while driving that can distract from the road, such as:

  • Texting
  • Eating
  • Applying Makeup
  • Grooming
  • Reading
  • Checking E-mail
Unfortunately, the list can go on. Pay attention and don't do these things while driving, especially on a holiday weekend at the Lake because the roads are much busier. You can also be more likely to get a ticket at the Lake of the Ozarks if you choose to speed on a holiday weekend. Law enforcement can tend to increase their traffic patrols and be heavier on a busy weekend such as July 4th weekend.

Get a safe ride home after consuming alcohol at a holiday party.

Do not drink at a 4th of July party at the Lake of the Ozarks and then try to drive home after. It just isn't worth it - plain and simple. Call a taxi or friend to come pick you up.
