St. Patrick’s Day Safety Tips

It’s almost time for St. Patrick’s Day! That means fun times are ahead, but there is a fine line between a fun time and a life altering mistake. If you follow these three tips, you’re sure to have a safe, fun and festive holiday!

St. Patrick’s Day Safety Tips

Have a Designated Driver

No matter what, do not get into a car with a drunk driver this St. Patrick’s Day. The last thing you want to have to deal with is potentially life altering consequences on a day that is meant for celebration. Law enforcement presence is increased every year on St. Patrick’s Day. Be sure to decide your designated driver before the festivities begin to avoid any confusion when the time comes to go home. No designated driver? No problem. Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft take all the stress out of finding a ride home even if you forget to plan ahead.

Look After Your Friends

You don’t have to make yourself the self-appointed party chaperone, but it makes sense to keep an eye on your friends and loved ones on St. Patrick’s Day. Are they staying within their limits? Might they potentially try to drive while intoxicated? Taking their keys and/or helping them come up with an alternate plan to get home safely could genuinely save their life or the lives of innocent bystanders.

Don’t Forget the Seatbelt!

Okay, this might seem trivial, but hear us out! Police officers specifically step-up seat belt enforcement on festive holidays, and this is especially true at night! Save yourself the stress of dealing with a traffic stop for this silly mistake. More importantly, it will keep you safe on a night where other drivers could potentially be major risk factors.

We hope you have a fantastic St. Patrick’s Day!
