One important point you bring up is to be extra careful riding on these summer holidays. New Years Eve is bad enough, but on 7/4 people start drinking beer at 11 AM and they don't stop all day. A lot of them don't seem to realize that they're under the influence, maybe because they're drinking beer at a picnic rather than hard stuff at a bar or a house party.
Around here they start drinking the night before and never stop...

NCSHP had a road block set up just down the main road from my house. They even had the mobile magistrate bus there along with the paddy wagon and a couple of tow trucks. There were about 15 cars pulled over into the adjacent parking lot. So it looks like a typical holiday weekend here.
