Green beer, leprechauns, and elusive pots of gold are all hallmarks of St. Patrick’s Day, the long-awaited Irish holiday. Make sure you and your friends stay safe this St. Patrick’s Day by remembering one important piece of advice: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. This means that if you plan to drink any alcoholic beverage, even a watered-down green beer, it’s essential that you plan for a designated driver. In 2018 alone, 73 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes nationwide over the St. Patrick’s Day holiday period. For this reason, The Pennsylvania DUI Association and Law Enforcement are teaming up with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration¬† (NHTSA) to spread the message about the dangers of drunk driving.
