RICHMOND, Va. — Thursday will be July 4th, and the Virginia Department of Transportation wants drivers in the Commonwealth to be careful.
“You’re not a firework, don’t drive lit,” is being displayed on overhead digital highway signs as a way to reach out to drivers in Virginia.
VDOT posted the image of the sign on its social media outlets this week.
According to @nhtsagov, more people die in drunk driving crashes in July than any other month. And #FourthofJuly is a big factor. This week + weekend remember to designate before you celebrate. You are NOT a firework 🚫🍻➕🚗 • @karinanbc12 on @twitter
