It makes sense to exercise caution if you plan to be out and about on St. Patrick’s Day. This holiday is one of the most dangerous times to drive. Along with corned beef and cabbage and the wearing of the color green, St. Paddy’s Day celebrations often involve drinking green beer, shots of Irish whiskey, Guinness, and other alcoholic beverages. With pub crawls, private parties, and residents gathering in bars and restaurants, alcohol consumption is abnormally high – with more drunk drivers sharing the streets and highways.

Tailgating is the act of following another vehicle too closely. It is considered to be a dangerous driving behavior because it increases the risk of a rear-end collision. Rear-end collisions can be devastating, especially at high speeds. Tailgating is also a major contributor to traffic congestion, as it reduces the amount of space between vehicles and makes it difficult for other drivers to change lanes.

Wild animals can cause traffic accidents for a variety of reasons. Animals may dart out into the road without warning, suddenly causing drivers to swerve or a brake. Some animals may be attracted to the bright lights and noise of traffic and wander onto the road in search of the source of the commotion. In some areas, animals may be fleeing from wildfires or other natural disasters and crossroads in large numbers, increasing the chances of an accident. Deer and other animals are often active at dawn and dusk when visibility is low, and drivers may have difficulty spotting them.
