July 4th Holiday C.A.R.E. Life Saver Weekend - Week, Statewide

As the July 4th weekend approaches, our enthusiasm with the summer months continues to grow. Colonel Nathan Noyes, along with the men and women of the New Hampshire State Police hope that the citizens of New Hampshire enjoy themselves and drive safely throughout this holiday week.

The New Hampshire State Police is committed to ensuring safe travel throughout the State and will continue our efforts to reduce collisions and deaths through this week and weekend, as well as throughout the summer months. We ask for your assistance in keeping 100 percent of your focus on the roadway and avoid driving distracted. Please remember to buckle up, do not mix alcohol or drugs while driving, put down your electronic devices, and Slow Down.

Saving lives on our roadways is a top priority and we need everyone's help to do it. This is why the State Police is joining with other state, local, and county safety officials to remind everyone that we are 'Driving Towards Zero'…ZERO fatalities. Here are some simple steps to take in an effort to enjoy a safe and wonderful holiday weekend without jeopardizing your life and the lives of others on the roadways:

  • Plan ahead.
  • Designate a sober driver and hand over your keys.
  • Call an Uber/Lyft/taxi/family member/friend to pick you up.
  • Use public transportation.
  • Use Sober Rides programs where available.
  • If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, call 911;
  • And remember, if you know someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely.

Please: Buckle Up; Don't mix alcohol and impairing drugs with driving; Don't Drive Distracted, and simply Slow Down.

Have a happy and safe holiday weekend.
