Like clockwork, St. Patrick’s Day lands on March 17th every year. Millions of people celebrate this day with green clothing, corned beef and cabbage, and Irish soda bread. This day is also known as a popular occasion for drinking. Celebrating safely this Patty’s Day is the most important thing to keep in mind. Here are some things to remember:
The legal BAC limit in the state of California is .08.
Sleeping in a parked car can also result in a DUI, if your BAC is above legal limits.
Drug impairment, even from legal or prescribed drugs, can also qualify as a DUI.
Sobriety checkpoints and DUI Patrols are increased on St. Patrick’s Day, so you will likely pass at least one officer on your way home from a bar.
Breathe Easy Insurance Solutions wants to place emphasis on safe and responsible driving choices this St. Patrick’s Day. Consider calling a rideshare company such as Uber or Lyft, or even a taxi, if you have been drinking. It is a small price to pay to ensure your own safety and the safety of others.
