St. Patrick’s Day is often looked at as the unofficial start of spring and a time to celebrate with friends at pubs, parties and festivals.

Unfortunately, these celebrations have resulted in St. Patrick’s Day becoming one of the year’s most dangerous times to be on the road. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, during the 2020 St. Patrick’s Day weekend alone (6 p.m. March 16 to 5:59 a.m. March 18), more than a third of traffic crash fatalities involved a drunk driver.
