There are a lot of people expected to be out on the roads for the Fourth of July holiday, so be extra careful.

Studies show July 4 is the deadliest day of the year to drive in the U.S.
A study from Geotab looked at crashes from 2006 to 2015 and found on average of 119 deadly crashes that occur on July 4 each year. And what's more alarming is that the data shows 47 percent of those crashes involved drivers impaired by alcohol or drugs.

In Texas, July 4 is only the second deadliest day to drive. According to Geotab, New Year's Day is the deadliest day here in the Lone Star State.

If you are going to drive, make sure you have a designated driver.
