Be Safe this Saint Patrick's Day!

Saturday, March 13, 2010 Posted by Rita A

St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner, and it's not the luck of the Irish that will keep the roads safe. It is planning now for a safe and sober way home.

Are you headed out with friends after work this Wednesday to celebrate the holiday? No? Well when you and your family are on the road headed to choir practice, a t-ball game, or coming home from school, you may be sharing the road with those returning from a fun St. Patrick's Day event. It's time to spread the word about the dangers of buzzed driving and to remind people that Buzzed Driving IS Drunk Driving, and the best way to stay safe is to plan ahead.

Let's remind everyone about the importance of remembering to:

Designate a sober driver before you leave for your event.

Be ready to take alternate transportation such as a bus or taxi. Have the phone number of a taxi service stored in your phone before you leave for the party.

And for those who don't plan on over-indulging, a buzzed driving crash looks the same as a drunk driving crash.

We need your help in keeping the roads safe for everyone this St. Patrick's Day by spreading the word that Buzzed driving IS drunk driving.

To learn more about the impact buzzed driving can have on a life, please watch this important video about the financial and personal repercussions of getting a DUI.

Remember: Buzzed Driving IS Drunk Driving. Plan ahead and ask your loved ones to do the same.

Be safe out there!
