St. Patrick's Day Celebration - Have a Designated Driver

If you are planning to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, please have a designated driver.

St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most widely celebrated saint’s days in the world, but all too often it shares that great distinction with a far lesser one—too many people are driving drunk and killing or maiming themselves and others on the road as a result.  Even if you think you’ve had only a few drinks and are just feeling ‘buzzed,’ don’t kid yourself because Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving. Alcohol not only dangerously impairs your driving skills; it also impairs your judgment.

The Lakeland Police Department recommends the following easy steps, for a safe St. Patrick’s Day.
•  Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin and designate a sober driver.
•  If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, don’t hesitate to contact your local law enforcement.
•  And remember, if you know people who are about to drive, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely.
