Fourth Of July Letter to the Editor

This Fourth of July, Americans everywhere will toast to our nation’s 241st birthday. Fireworks will light the night sky as friends, families, and communities gather together to celebrate our independence.

While summer holidays are a great chance to enjoy a cold beer in the summer sun, always remember to celebrate responsibly. This Independence Day, let’s give America the best birthday gift we can by planning ahead for a safe ride home and helping keep our roads safe for all.

Over the past 35 years, Anheuser-Busch and its wholesaler partners have invested more than $1 billion in the United States to promote alcohol responsibility and help prevent drunk driving.  Locally, Silver Eagle is working with area bars and restaurants to encourage revelers 21 and older to celebrate responsibly and designate a driver or make plans for a safe ride home. And in conjunction with the Houston Restaurant Association, we will also be implementing programs such as Alert Cab, which helps provide free and discounted rides home for bar and restaurant patrons who may have had too much to drink. Driver’s License guides and We I.D. age calendars will also be used to assist in identifying and preventing those who are underage from purchasing and consuming alcohol.

On this holiday, and all year long, remember that drunk driving is 100 percent preventable when we all do our part. Get a ride. Call a cab. Take public transportation. Whatever you do, care enough to get home safely. Have a fun and safe holiday!
