This weekend, Nashville will play host to a number of events aimed at celebrating our nation’s independence. That’s why the Nashville personal injury lawyers at Ponce Law would like to let you know about some of the festivities, as well as what’s being done to keep revelers safe throughout the weekend.
The Music City Fourth of July celebration will kick off at 4 p.m. tomorrow, July 3, with a free concert featuring The Weeks, Gabe Dixon, and Elise Davis. Then, on July 4, another concert will take place where Martina McBride, Mikky Ekko, and the Nashville Symphony will perform.
The event will culminate with the largest fireworks display in the nation. More than 16,000 lbs. of explosives will be used to light up the night sky.
All of these events will attract hundreds of thousands of people to our city, which could result in heavy traffic and an increased risk of accidents. WKRN 2 News reports the Tennessee Highway Patrol will be working to keep all motorists safe during the holiday by increasing saturation patrols and conducting sobriety and seatbelt checkpoints.
The Nashville car accident attorneys at Ponce Law point out you can help keep yourself and other motorists safe by buckling up, slowing down, and driving defensively.
We hope this information helps you to have a safe and fun Fourth of July!
