If you've got some major Independence Day partying to do this week, stay out of the driver's seat or the Illinois Police are going to get you!

Being a responsible driver should be a give in these days, but unfortunately the amount of people that are driving impaired or distracted is still high, so State Troopers across Illinois will be highly enforcing the "Fatal 4 traffic violations" this week which are; DUI, speeding, failure to wear seat belts and distracted driving, according to WREX.

Plan a designated driver ahead of time, or download a ride-sharing app such as Uber or Lyft now. I'm sure all of these companies will be highly staffed this holiday week, so don't even waste your time thinking "I may be o.k. to drive", just please call for a ride and do your part to keep every Illinoisan safe this 4th of July.

Thank you, and God Bless America!
