How to Have a Safe St. Patrick’s Day in Maryland

By Alpert Schreyer on March 15, 2012

Drunk driving crashes unfortunately occur in Maryland year-round; however, the coming of St. Patrick’s Day on March 17 brings extra awareness to these dangerous accidents. Because so many drink to celebrate this holiday, there is often an increase of drunk driving incidents when celebrators do not prevent themselves from making poor choices. Whether or not you are planning to go out and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, it is important for all Maryland residents to be aware of the dangers present on this holiday and how to best prevent a drunk driving crash from hurting you or your loved ones.

To prevent an onslaught of intoxicated driver crashes this St. Patrick’s Day, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) offers these holiday tips.

For Partygoers

  • If you plan on drinking, leave your car at home so you are not tempted to drive.
  • Plan on how you will be getting home prior to leaving for the party.
  • If you will be using a taxi or sober ride program to get home, program its number into your phone for easy access.
  • Keep others from driving drunk by taking away their keys if you see that they are planning to drive while intoxicated.
  • Do not over serve yourself or others to help avoid becoming too intoxicated.

For Anyone on the Road

  • Be aware of the behavior of drivers around you to notice if they may be drunk.
  • Immediately report possible drunk drivers to the police to prevent possible accidents.
  • If you have identified a drunk driver, stay far away from them, preferably by exiting the road that they are on, to avoid being involved in a crash.

While practicing safe driving and keeping an eye out for intoxicated drivers can prevent many accidents, it cannot stop all of them. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by a negligent driver at any point during the year, the Annapolis auto accident injury lawyers at Alpert Schreyer can aid you in your search for compensation from the at-fault party.
