Stay Safe and Celebrate Fourth of July Weekend Responsibly
Culver City, Calif. – Culver City Police Department reminds drivers to plan ahead and celebrate the holiday safely and responsibly.
This weekend and through Monday, July 4, the Culver City Police Department will have additional officers on patrol looking for drivers suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
In 2020, nearly 500 people were killed in crashes throughout the country during the Fourth of July weekend. Of those deadly crashes, 41% involved alcohol.
“If you plan on drinking this weekend, plan on a safe and sober ride home,” Assistant Chief Jason Sims said. “Think of your loved ones, friends, and family before thinking about driving after you’ve had a few drinks.”
According to AAA Southern California, more than five million Californians will travel over the 4th of July holiday. With most traveling by car, travelers should allow extra time to get to their destination.
While some festivities may include alcohol, driving under the influence also includes impairment from prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications and marijuana. Do your research and be informed about how certain drugs may affect your driving ability before you drive.

If you are hosting friends and family for barbecues and watching fireworks shows, offer nonalcoholic drinks for designated sober drivers and monitor who is drinking. If you see people leaving after drinking alcoholic beverages, offer to have them stay the night or make arrangements for a ride home with a sober driver.

If you see someone who appears impaired or driving recklessly, call 9-1-1.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
