Fourth of July Fun

The day America gained its independence is a day to celebrate, this year more than most.  After the lockdowns from Covid-19, everyone is ready to celebrate…together, under the summer sun to barbeque, watch parades, and gather beneath the stars to watch the fireworks.  Family and friends get together for barbecues and drinks are common in America on the 4th, but this year everyone will show up.

How to Avoid a Wisconsin OWI

Groups of people in Wisconsin on the Fourth of July almost always consume alcohol.  In order to avoid a Wisconsin OWI, many smart decisions should be made prior to and while partaking in the consumption of alcohol. If you are going to drink, make plans not to drive. Whether the arrangement involves a ride with a designated driver, spending the evening where the party is, or using a service like Uber or Lyft to get to and from your destination. Anything is better than you driving intoxicated.

Follow these 2 Steps:

  • Plan transportation ahead – Uber, Lyft, Designate a driver.
  • If you plan on drinking, leave your car at home
