Many U.S. residents in Georgia and across the country love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, often by visiting bars, restaurants, or parties where alcohol is served. While alcohol can be part of a great party, you can also protect your own safety and the safety of someone you love by taking a few simple steps to reduce the number of drunk drivers on the roads this coming weekend:
- Choose a designated driver to prevent a dangerous Georgia car accident. Don’t hesitate to choose yourself – and remember to stay away from all alcoholic drinks if you do. Make sure your designated driver has plenty of non-alcoholic drink and snack choices.
- Public transportation, taxi companies, sober-ride-sharing programs, and even walking can all offer a safe alternative to driving with alcohol in your system. Prepare yourself by programming the contact information for a few of these options into your cell phone before heading out. Not only will you be ready if you need a ride, but you’ll be able to help others get home safely as well.
- If you see a driver whom you suspect is drunk, contact local law enforcement immediately. Doing so may literally save a life.
