Saint Patricks Day Safety TIps

St. Patrick’s Day is an Irish holiday that has lost much of its heritage and transformed into a day for Americans to drink to their heart’s (and liver’s) delight. 

If you are reading this article it means you are likely going to drink on St. Patrick’s Day and become inebriated when the day comes. The fact that you are reading this also means that you want to stay as safe as possible and reduce your chances of getting into an accident, and that’s a great level of consciousness to have. Here are a few St. Patrick’s Day tips to help keep you safe.

Public Transportation

Public transportation is a great service that can help get us to our destination for a very cheap price. It may take longer to get to your destination, but it is better than getting pulled over and going to jail with a DUI.

Pick a Designated Driver

Another good way to party on St. Patrick’s Day is by picking a designated driver. To be as random as possible you can draw names from a hat–the last name remaining is the driver. As an added bonus, the drinkers should pay for gas and any soft drinks the driver orders.

Party at Home

Who says you have to go out at all? You pay three times as much for a drink and you’re surrounded by random people. Host a St. Patrick’s party right in your home with green beer and Irish games. Invite people to spend the night if they do not have a ride home.

Along with these tips, a quality insurance policy can help keep you safe during St. Patricks’ Day should an accident occur. contact Scautub Agency for all of your insurance needs. Our Scotia, New York team can help keep you – and your wallet – safe.
