Happy St. Patrick's Day!
St. Patrick’s Day is one of the top 10 most popular drinking holidays. While this is a fun and festive holiday that many Irish and Americans celebrate, bar crawls, parties, and fun celebrations can also be a recipe for disaster if even one person decides to drink and drive.
According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2016, 60 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes over the St. Paddy’s Day holiday period. Between 2016 and 2020, 287 people lost their lives in drunk-driving collisions over the holiday period. During the 2020 St Patrick's Day period, 36% of motor vehicle crash fatalities involved drunk drivers. This is an unfortunate reality for this holiday and one that is preventable if you are prepared.
