Historically - This Holiday Weekend the Deadliest


The Oregon State Police hope that you will remember to designate a driver if you plan to drink over the holiday weekend. The Fourth of July holiday means camping, picnicking and spending time with friends and family. For law enforcement,  this holiday is one of the deadliest of the year. “Our work's cut out for us. And we know that we can have the possibility of fewer deaths and hopefully no fatalities with people making smart decisions out there on the roadways. So we'll be increasing our patrols. We’ll be using overtime grant funds, and our main focus, will obviously be the impaired driver because about half the traffic fatalities in Oregon since 1970, over the Fourth of July holiday weekend are alcohol involved fatality crashes." OSP Lieutenant Gregg Hastings says their campaign: “Drung Driving- Over the Limit -Under Arrest" begins at 6 p.m. Friday and ends Monday at midnight. Hastings says to designate a driver or just stay put if you are going to drink alcohol.
