The spectacle of 4th of July is always the fireworks show. They cease to amaze us, no matter how many times we watch them light up the sky. We always want the best view, the closest view. Sometimes, we even want to play with them ourselves. But, do you know what fireworks you are and are not allowed to set off? Yes, many are too dangerous and are thus, illegal for the public to engage with, such as:
- Sparklers over 10 inches
- And others – pretty much everything that shoots up into the air and sets off fires.
Fireworks labeled “safe and sane” are ones the public are allowed to purchase and use.
In addition to the types of fireworks, there are other restrictions:
- Fireworks may not be set off in a situation that poses danger or a threat to others.
- Fireworks may not be set off within 100 feet of gasoline or other flammables.
- You must be 16 or older to purchase fireworks.
There are consequences for anyone found violating these terms, and the police will have no problem enforcing these consequences during the July 4th weekend. Violators can face up to a year in jail and/or a fine.
