    St. Patrick’s Day is as fun a day to celebrate as any. I should know- I’m Irish!

    Enjoying the festivities doesn’t mean we can’t stay safe as well. Here are some great tips from Geico.com to make this the best St. Patrick’s Day ever!

    Plan Ahead

    1. Have a designated driver. Don’t be the one behind the wheel if you’re looking to enjoy that green beer!
    2. Have an alternate plan. There are so many choices to get you from the party to home, so if you can’t have a designated driver, use a service like Uber or Lyft, or plan a hotel stay within close walking distance to the festivities.

    Stay Aware

    1. Drink water and eat food. Do all you can to counter the effects of alcohol. Don’t drink on an empty stomach!
    2. Don’t leave your drink unattended. Unfortunately, bad stuff can happen nowadays in a busy setting. Also, don’t accept a drink you didn’t order, especially from someone you don’t know.
    3. Keep an eye on your friends. For both their and your safety, make sure that everyone is accounted for and that no one is driving drunk.
    4. If you’re the designated driver, drive carefully. While you’re going to make sure that you’re doing the right thing, there are a lot of other people who won’t be. Make sure everyone in your care is buckled up, including you, and drive extra defensively. Watch out for pedestrians who may have had a bit too much to drink themselves. They may not have a very good idea of what’s going on around them.

    So, have a great time, enjoy another great St. Patrick’s Day, and, as we Irish say:

    Sláinte!
