The Florida Highway Patrol is expecting a record number of Floridians to hit the road this Fourth of July weekend!

According to the FHP, they are expecting more than 2.6 million Floridians to travel, with nearly 90% traveling by car.

The FHP wants to remind drivers not to drive impaired and to report any impaired or aggressive drivers to FHP or call 911. Drivers are also urged to get plenty of rest, as drowsy drivers can be just as dangerous as impaired drivers.
