St. Patrick’s Day coincides with the arrival of spring. The combination of warmer weather and a festive holiday can make it a day for celebration and drinking. But if you decide to drink this St. Patrick’s Day, the most important thing you can do is to NOT drive.
The consequences of getting behind the wheel when you’re even “buzzed” can be catastrophic. Driving is a highly complex task that requires all of your attention. However, many people take driving for granted, and they often don’t notice when alcohol has dulled their senses, reduced their reaction times, and impaired their judgment.
All it takes is one momentary lapse in any of those to result in an accident that changes your life or the life of another person forever. In 2022, there’s simply no excuse for driving while impaired. You have so many options for avoiding impaired driving, whether it’s using a rideshare service, having a sober friend take you home, using public transportation, or staying where you are overnight.
Unfortunately, committing to safe and sober driving is only part of the equation. For Nashville’s roads to be safe, all drivers must commit to this, and that’s a difficult goal to achieve. At Ponce Law, our legal team knows that there will always be negligent and reckless drivers out there, especially on holidays.
