JONESBORO, Ark. – The City of Jonesboro wishes everyone a Happy Independence weekend and Fourth of July, but wants to offer a reminder of the dangers inherent of the deadliest holiday of the year.
The National Safety Council anticipates that more than 41,000 Americans will be injured and about 400 will die in car crashes, swimming incidents and fireworks accidents over the holiday.
Mayor Harold Perrin and the City of Jonesboro hope that residents and visitors do not become a part of these statistics and remind residents that discharging fireworks of any description within city limits is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine up to $500.
