Inevitably, holiday celebrations will include alcohol. And there's nothing wrong with that. I imbibe. But much like The Dude, I abide, as well. Abide the the law and social contract to not be a drunk driver. And the Quincy Police Department has issued a press release stating that for the next two weeks, from June 25th to July 8th, they'll be cracking down on not only impaired driving, but also seat belt infractions.

In a press release posted to Facebook earlier today, Deputy Chief Doug VanderMaiden said, "If you're going to drink, don't drive. Doo many people die behind the wheel each year... Our officers will be out in full force, showing zero tolerance for impaired drivers." They still want to encourage everyone to celebrate and enjoy Independence Day, just do so safely. Safely for you, and for others.

Quincy Police suggest you give your keys to a sober friend, and arrange a designated driver beforehand, or call a taxi or ride-share service if you find you've had too much at the end of the night. And they want to remind everyone to buckle up for safety.
