Missourians are approaching the Fourth of July Holiday weekend, and everyone at Ponder Zimmermann hopes that everyone enjoys an accident-free weekend. Higher levels of traffic can lead to auto accidents, and boating safety is extremely important as thousands of Missourians head to this state’s rivers and lakes. The Missouri Highway Patrol issued this statement concerning boating safety. St. Louis and the surrounding areas have experienced a lot of high water and flooding this spring and summer, so it is especially important to be cautious this summer while having fun on the water.
Another safety concern over the holiday weekend is firework safety. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued these warnings concerning firework safety.
