This year’s St. Patrick’s Day will be a time of celebration for many, but there is a danger for the holiday to turn deadly.
AAA East Central advises partygoers to celebrate with safety in mind. By planning ahead, motorists can avoid a possible OVI and keep themselves and others safe.
“Not only can a OVI result in devastating crashes, but a conviction can weigh heavily on your pocketbook,” says Lori Cook, safety advisor for AAA East Central. “Alcohol and driving should never mix, and simple steps taken before a celebration can go a long way towards keeping you and everyone around you safe.”
