Councilmember Richard Fimbres 4th of July Safety Message

TUCSON – Ward 5 Councilmember Richard Fimbres wants everyone to have safe time over the Fourth of July Holiday Weekend.


As you all know, we will all be at various events this weekend celebrating our nation’s birthday.


It is important during these times, to be mindful of the heat, careful using fireworks and please don’t drink and drive.  If you choose to drink, please designate a driver, call a cab, use Uber or Lyft with city first drive discount.


New users can get $15 off their first ride using the promo code NODUITUCSON. New and existing users can get $10 off two separate rides using promo code SAFE4THTUS. The codes are valid from 5 p.m. July 1 through 4 a.m. July 5.


Also, if you are out and its raining, don’t drive through washes or flooded roads. Arizona has its stupid motorist law and it is strictly enforced.


If it is hot out, please make sure you have plenty of water with you. 


On Monday, July 4, our community will enjoy the fireworks display, thanks to the generous sponsorship by the Tohono O’odham nation.  I want to thank Chairman Edward Manuel for this and previous year’s donations.
