If you’re heading out to a St. Patrick’s Day celebration this year, make sure you have more than just the luck o’ the Irish on your side. St. Patrick’s Day is one of the biggest drinking holidays of the year, and that, unfortunately, means it is also one of the most deadly holidays on our nation’s roads. From 2014-2018, 249 lives were lost in drunk-driving crashes during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday period (6 p.m. March 16 to 5:59 a.m. March 18). Do your part this St. Patrick’s Day: arrange for a sober driver to ensure you get home safely.
