Safe Driving Tips for 4th of July travelers

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

Fourth of July is only a few days away, but families are already packing up and rolling out for an early weekend.

While families prepare to travel this holiday weekend, Montana Highway Patrol has a few safety tips to keep in mind once you hit the road.

Sergeant Alex Betz said,"We want to allow ourselves enough time to reach our destination, so we're not rushing and hurrying through things. And as always, never drink and drive while out on the road, and buckle up."

 Not only should Montana drivers travel with caution, but should also be aware of road construction.

"There's a little bit of road construction towards Townsend, and there's also construction on Highway 200 that you'll need to allow sometime to get through those areas," Betz said.

Betz also says there will be extra troopers out on patrol during the holiday weekend.

"We have some overtime shift available for our troopers, and we will be out enforcing the laws and trying to help people be safe over the holiday weekend," Betz said.

Overall be sure to give yourself enough time to start your journey and be aware of more drivers on the road.
