St. Patrick’s Day Accidents
As we move into March, many are gearing up for St. Patrick’s Day and making plans that typically involve drinking. While drinking can be fun in moderation, the reality of binge-drinking on St. Patrick’s Day has sometimes brought deadly consequences for those who drive on this day.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 700 people were killed nationwide in crashes involving drunk drivers during St. Patrick’s Day holidays from 2006 to 2010. In 2010 alone, 80% of alcohol-related accidents on St. Patrick’s Day involved drivers who had blood-alcohol levels nearly twice the legal limit.
Fortunately, thanks to efforts to combat drunk driving across the state, the number of drunk-driving fatalities during the St. Patrick’s Holiday period in Oklahoma City has decreased in recent years. Drivers and parade goers alike should still exercise caution when traveling to and from destinations during the holiday.
If you witness a friend or family member attempting to drive while intoxicated, stop them and help them call an Uber home. The cost of getting home safely is much less than that of getting into a potentially fatal accident.
Community and Well-Being First
Uber is a reliable, well-known rideshare service that serves over 40 million people monthly. We caution drivers that the results of driving under the influence can be deadly to drivers, passengers and pedestrians alike. Your health, safety and legal security can be compromised due to one person’s irresponsible decision, and calling an Uber on parade day can help reduce the risk of injury or death.
Hundreds of people have been injured or lost their lives to DUI-related incidents in previous years, and Angela Singleton’s goal is to ensure that individuals celebrating St. Patrick’s Day remain safe at every part of the night. When making plans for this St. Patrick’s Day parade, consider utilizing a rideshare service such as Uber. With careful planning and smart decision-making, we can help make your parade day the safest it has ever been.
