Best wishes for a safe, happy July 4th!

Happy July 4th!  Hope you, your families, friends and loved ones have a safe and happy Independence Day!  

44 million Americans traveling 50 miles or more for celebratory activities make this among the most traveled July 4th weekends ever!  The U. S. Department of Transportation has the important responsibility of helping to keep the traveling public safe in every mode of transportation.  We thank the professionals working in the Department for their dedication and hard work. 

As we celebrate our nation’s Independence Day, I hope you will also join me in taking a moment to remember our men and women in uniform who make so many sacrifices to preserve our freedoms.  Have a great July 4th!
