St. Patrick’s Day can be a fun holiday. In our house, it’s time for corned beef and cabbage and a whole lot of green clothing. And for many people, the holiday means a glass of Irish whiskey and green beer. That’s what also makes it a dangerous holiday.
From 2010 to 2014, the National Highway Transportation Administration found that 266 people were killed in car crashes over the St. Patrick’s Day holiday period. A high number of those deaths came because of crashes involving drunk drivers.
Stay safe on the roads this weekend. Even if you haven’t been drinking, there will unfortunately be plenty of drivers who have been drinking. And if you are walking, watch out for drunk drivers as well.
And remember, if you or a loved one is injured because of a drunk driver this weekend, we’ve got your back. Call me, I’d love to help.
