St. Patricks Day Safety

St. Patricks Day Safety2 tips on how to stay safe this St. Patrick’s Day.

St. Patrick’s Day is a great time to spend with your friends and family. But you should know that there is a dark side to St. Patrick’s Day that not even Darth Vader would wish upon his worst of enemies: drinking and driving. Use these two important tips to help you stay safe on the roads this St. Patrick’s Day.

If you don’t drink, be cautious on the roads!

Even if you’re the designated driver for the night or spend the night at a family event, there are others that may not have been as smart as you and your friends about staying sober. Be on high alert when you cross an intersection, and if you get a yellow light it’s best not to chance it with other drivers on this night.

If you do drink, plan your way home. Please.

It’s imperative that you plan a way home before you start drinking. It can be your friend, a taxi, or public transportation. The cost of a cab is much better than the alternative!

Having a safe St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t mean it has to be boring! We just ask that you make safe decisions – for yourself and others on the road. To do even more to keep yourself safe this holiday and throughout the year, contact Perry & Carroll in Elmira, New York to get the right health insurance policy for your body and for your budget.
