It’s a week away from St. Patrick’s Day! And you know what that means: Whiskey and green beer, green attire and accessories, shepherd’s pie, and the freedom to pinch anyone who didn’t wear green.
Don’t let it also mean getting caught in the DUI line during this holiday, or March Madness for that matter. Here are some tips to help you stay safe and have fun:
1. Leave your loot at home.
You’ll only need your driver’s license, money, and smartphone … oh and don’t forget your blinking shamrock pin.
2. Be aware of your surroundings.
If you’re going to a crowded event, such as a local St. Paddy’s Day parade or Irish pub, locate exits and where you can go for help if necessary.
3. Create your luck with Transcity Limos.
Keep in mind, drinks inside pubs will add up. Instead, split the cost of a limo with a group of friends. You can party onboard, skip the crowds, stay safe, and travel in style.
4. Don’t press your luck.
If you plan on drinking, don’t drive! Designate a driver, hire Transcity Limos (of course), or call a cab. There are no excuses, especially since Discount Cab offers its Free Ride Back program.
5. Lookout for leprechauns.
Not really. However, watch out for drunk drivers and walkers who are under the influence. They won’t be paying any attention to lights or crosswalks.
6. Use the buddy system.
If you go out with a group of friends, have everyone pair up to make sure they get home safely.
7. Eat and stay hydrated.
Don’t drink on an empty stomach (eat fish ‘n’ chips!), and definitely drink water or non-alcoholic beverages in between the whiskey shots and Guinness.
8. Never leave your drink unattended.
Finish your green beer before using the bathroom. You never know when a lurking leprechaun may slip something into it.
9. Be prepared.
Have cab and emergency contact numbers handy, just in case.
10. Be smart.
The DUI Task Force will be out looking for partygoers to arrest. Book with us, get a cab, or designate a driver!
St. Patrick’s day will be safe and fun if you follow these tips. Obviously, we also give you plenty of reasons to book your St. Patrick’s transportation with Transcity Limos. We’d be tickled green if you chose us to be your designated driver for your St. Patrick’s Day celebrating. Most importantly, we wish you a safe and fun holiday. And as the Irish saying goes, “May the road rise up to meet you....”
