With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, we all know that it’s not just the Irish celebrating this “drinking holiday.”
Did you know that on a typical St. Patrick’s Day, 37% of the drivers and motorcyclists involved in fatal crashes had a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or above? It’s a sobering fact, according to statistics by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Even if you’re not a drinker, or if you plan on skipping the celebration altogether, you should know that during  St. Patrick’s Day festivities, hundreds of  occupants of other vehicles are killed in crashes involving alcohol-impaired drivers.

Buzzed driving crash has the same consequences as a drunk driving crash. Please repeat that to yourself, have it stitched on a pillow or tattooed on you forehead. It is that important. Learn more by following Buzzed Driving on Facebook  and Twitter.

Remember: Buzzed Driving IS Drunk Driving. Don’t rely on dumb luck this St. Patrick’s Day. Program a few taxi cab company numbers in your phone or decide on a sober designated driver at the beginning of the night.
