From 2009 to 2013, during the Fourth of July period nearly 40-percent of all traffic fatalities occurred in alcohol impaired driving crashes. Of the five major holiday periods of the year in California, the Fourth of July ranks as having the highest daily fatality rate.
Nationally, in 2013, during the Fourth of July holiday period (6 p.m. July 3 to 5:59 a.m. July 8), there were 199 people killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In California, 28 people were killed in alcohol-involved crashes.Learn more »
