Saint Patrick’s Day is a fun holiday where people get to cut loose for a while and go out and party. While there are plenty of people who know how to do this responsibly, there are also plenty of people who don’t know when to call it quits. They let things get too out of control and somebody ends up in serious trouble.
Sometimes, this serious trouble involves someone getting hurt or arrested, and that is something that no one wants to happen on a holiday. In order to avoid this kind of horrible outcome, a person needs to be responsible. One such way to do this is by drinking responsibly.
Saint Patrick’s Day has become a very popular drinking holiday with many people going from bar to bar in search of a good time. Whenever a person is out drinking, they need to make wise decisions. This means planning out a ride beforehand. Someone in the group either needs to be a designated driver (DD) or other forms of transportation, such as a taxi, Uber, or Lyft, need to be acquired.
When a person drives with alcohol in their system, they are 11 times more likely to get into an accident than a sober driver. When someone drives drunk, they not only endanger their own lives, but the lives of every single person they pass on the street. No one wants to be in an accident, especially someone who had nothing to do with the intoxicated party.
If you want to keep yourself out of trouble this Saint Patrick’s Day, then be sure to drink responsibly and get a safe ride home. Holidays are meant to be fun. You do not want to end up in an accident that hurts yourself or someone else.
