Drink Responsibly This Saint Patrick’s Day

Drink responsibly this saint patricks

There are certain times of the year where people like to party more than any other. This is especially true around holidays like New Year’s Eve and Saint Patrick’s Day. Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations in particular involve a whole lot of drinking. Drinking alcohol itself is ok, provided a person does so responsibly.

When it comes to drinking responsibly, most people are primarily concerned with making sure someone doesn’t drink and drive. Doing so is incredibly dangerous for the driver, any of their passengers, and anyone they might pass on the road. At any moment, a drunk driver could find themselves in an accident, unless they are caught beforehand.

October is here and that means Halloween is only a few weeks away. For kids, this means getting ready for a massive candy score after trick-or-treating. Adults are often more concerned with what parties they will be attending that night. These can be a lot of fun, provided the person is responsible with their actions.

It’s no secret that there will be alcohol at these parties, and most adults will enjoy themselves. This alone isn’t a problem. The real problem arises when people who have been drinking decide that they are going to drive. Drunk driving is always a bad idea. It can get a person into a lot of trouble, and yet people break this law all of the time.

In this day and age, there really is no reason for anyone to ever drive drunk. Advancements in technology, primarily the smart phone, have made finding a ride home easy and affordable. Apps like Uber and Lyft allow a person to hire a ride at any time, just about anywhere.

Despite this fact, some people still refuse to use these apps.

These people would rather drive drunk than spare a few extra bucks to ensure that they get home safely. What these people fail to realize, is that the consequences of driving drunk cost far more than just hiring a ride for the evening. Aside from the obvious risking of life and limb, the cost of a DUI is far more expensive than an Uber home.

Most people are aware of the fact that driving while drunk is a very bad thing to do. Driving under the influence (DUI) is an incredibly risky and dangerous act, not just for the driver, but everyone else they pass on the road. This is due to the fact that alcohol impairs a person’s abilities and thoughts, making them unfit to drive any sort of vehicle.

Despite knowing this fact, many drivers out there still break this law every single day. These drivers convince themselves that they are fine to drive, and that they aren’t that drunk. They drive off to wherever, and that’s where things go wrong.

There are laws against drunk driving in every single state in the Union in order to keep people safe. The laws here in California may just become a bit stricter thanks to a proposed bill c...

What Does DUI Stand For?

What Does DUI Stand For?

Just about every driver out there has heard of the term DUI. They know that it is something that they never want to receive and that it has something to do with drinking and driving. What many people may not realize is that DUI covers a whole lot more than drinking and driving. In fact that is why the term was changed from DWI to DUI.

With this legalization came new laws that limited and restricted the use of the drug. Even two years later, there is a bit of confusion as to when and where a person can smoke or ingest marijuana. One of the big questions is whether or not someone can drive after smoking marijuana, or even smoke while driving...

Young drivers are still learning how serious all of their actions behind the wheel of the car are. They do not understand that being under the influence of anything makes their driving worse.


With the recent legalization of recreational marijuana in the state of California, it has become easier for people to get ahold of. While this is fine for those who are of a legal age to use the drug, this has proven a bit problematic since it has made it easier for minors to get their hands on as the drug well.

Although the 4th of July falls on a Tuesday this year rather than the weekend, do not rule out the people enjoying a little extra partying, and the police setting up a few extra DUI checkpoints. As always, there will be many celebrations over the weekend. Then some people will have to go to work on that Monday, July 3rd, while others may get that day off. This means they would get a 4-day weekend. Work or no work on that 3rd, people are going to party hard anyway.


Anticipating a spike in alcohol consumption, the police will inevitably have more DUI checkpoints than normal. Some checkpoint locations will be announced beforehand, while others will pop up unexpectedly.


If you are driving and see a checkpoint up ahead, it actually is not illegal to make a u-turn to avoid the checkpoint, ...
