The Fourth of July is the deadliest day on the roads in the U.S. according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. 
Spokesperson Anne McCartt says heavy traffic is a factor, but there are some others. Often drivers are rushing to get to their holiday destination, others are speeding, some are too tired to drive. McCartt says worst yet, many are driving under the influence.
She says it is important to always wear your seatbelt and be aware of the behavior of other motorists. Remember not to follow too close and never drink and drive.
