Drink Responsible this July Fourth! #SummerResponsibly

The Fourth of July is steadily approaching, and we’re all gearing up for a big day of fun moments with friends, family and fireworks. The team at Responsibility.org was curious to hear how folks plan to celebrate the Fourth, so they recently conducted a survey asking just that. As part of our summer-long #SummerResponsibly campaign, they wanted to know: If adults plan to consume alcohol and attend or host parties, how do they help ensure everyone stays within their limits and gets home safely? Well, America, kudos to you.

Unsurprisingly, over half of you plan to attend a party, barbeque, picnic or other celebration to commemorate Independence Day. Of course you are, it’s tradition! So why the kudos? We found that among those who will be drinking during the holiday weekend:

  • More than half (55 percent) say they will consume alcohol moderately.
  • More than nine out of 10 hosts will plan ahead for their transportation needs and those of their friends and guests.
  • Some other ways you plan to celebrate responsibly include choosing not to drive drunk or allow others to drive drunk, using a designated driver or calling for a safe ride, and not providing alcohol to minors.

They think that’s pretty awesome! So they’re here to help you stick to your plan and #SummerResponsibly.

A decision you make in an instant, like having one too many drinks or getting behind the wheel drunk, could have long-term consequences. That’s why it’s so important to make decisions and set limits long before you start. We’ve got some tips to help you, your friends and family #SummerResponsibly this Fourth of July weekend, and all summer long!


Stay safe and have a great Fourth of July!
