Avoiding an Unlucky St. Patrick's Day


St. Patrick's Day is an Irish holiday that is celebrated in locations all over the world, including in Savannah, Georgia. In fact, St. Patrick's Day is considered the "biggest celebration of the year" here, according to the city's website.

While you are clad in green and helping celebrate with the common holiday traditions, you should be aware that law enforcement officers are standing by. As you head to your neighbor's party or your local bar, keep in mind that law enforcement will be relentless in its pursuit of drunk drivers during St. Patrick's Day. With even just a first-time DUI offense, you can suffer substantial penalties, including fines, time in jail, and the loss of your license. The weight of a DUI conviction is never worth a night of fun and celebration.

Tips to Avoid a DUI this St. Patrick's Day

Whether you are a long-time resident of Savannah or are visiting for the celebration, we want to provide you with the information that you need to help you keep your celebration going strong and not end behind bars.

Take heed to the tips below to avoid a DUI:

  • Select a designated driver – Choose someone who is reliable and will not decide to be the "designated drunk driver" instead
  • Do not drink on an empty stomach – Make sure to eat enough corned beef and cabbage if you choose to drink multiple Guinness
  • Check your license plate, break lights, and headlights – Do not give police officers an easy reason to pull you over
  • If you get stopped by law enforcement, do not offer evidence that you have been drinking
