Extra Patrol For Fourth of July Weekend

Posted: Updated:

The fourth of July is here, and many people are spending it at the beach, having barbecues, or going out with families.

But if you're adding alcohol to your celebration, police are urging you to make sure you're doing it responsibly - having a designated driver or taking a cab.

They have extra units out patrolling, looking for drivers who are not using signals properly, not coming to complete stops, or swerving - all signs the driver may be intoxicated.

Police urge people to utilize the various cab companies that are around town if you are out drinking.
