Irish eyes are smiling…when everyone has a safe and enjoyable St. Patrick’s Day

SiSt. Patrick's Day zzle up some corned beef and cabbage. Don your favorite green outfit, and don’t forget about that shamrock and the pot of gold. OK, I’ll stop with the St. Patrick’s Day stereotyping, but hey – it’s the one day everyone gets to be Irish—and we just want to make sure nobody takes the fun a wee bit too far.

Here are a couple things to be mindful of if you partake in the day’s revelries:

  • Good libations are a part of St. Patrick’s Day – that’s no secret. So, if you plan to drink, please don’t drive. Find a watering hole accessible by bus, subway or taxi to get your green beer.

  • If you’re heading off the beaten path and have to drive to your celebration, assign a designated driver. He or she will have to stick to soft drinks for this one – you can return the favor on Cinco de Mayo.

  • Remember to eat something with all that green beer. Three hearty helpings of corned beef and cabbage should do the trick.

  • If you’re driving around areas with lots of bars, stay extra alert. St. Patrick’s Day is a popular day for pub crawls, and the number of pedestrians out and about will sharply increase. In 2013, more than a third of pedestrian fatalities had a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or more.

  • If you’re a pedestrian, try to travel with a group and be aware of your surroundings. Always cross in a crosswalk when it’s clear, and never assume a driver will magically see you.

As you shake your shillelagh and do your best leprechaun impression, do remember to be careful, too, and the luck of the Irish will indeed stay on your side.

And, don’t count us out of the celebration because green just might be our favorite color here at GEICO!
