For many, St. Patrick's Day has become a popular night to celebrate with friends and family. Many will attend a St. Patrick's Day party at a friends house, restaurant or bar. In addition to the service of traditional corned beef and cabbage many of the parties will have a heavy focus on the consumption of alcohol. We'd like to remind those planning to celebrate this upcoming weekend to do it responsibly.
Here are a few tips to help you plan a for a safe night:
- Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin;
- Before drinking, please designate a sober driver and give that person your keys;
- If you’re impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation so you are sure to get home safely;
- If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, please contact law enforcement;
- If you know someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely.
- If you are hosting a party, serve a lot of food to go along with the alcohol and stop serving at a reasonable time. Have a plan in place for those who drink too much (provide a place for them to sleep or have taxi company phone numbers readily available to call).
Driving impaired or riding with someone who is impaired is simply not worth the risk. Not only do you risk killing yourself or someone else, but the trauma and financial costs of a crash or an arrest for driving while impaired can be really significant.
We wish you all a safe and happy St. Patrick's Day!
