According to studies, the most dangerous time to be on the road is between midnight and 5:59 a.m., so be vigilant and if you drink, enjoy that green beer responsibly by getting a designated driver, Uber, or taxi to take you home.
Accident attorney Barry P. Goldberg offers these tips to those who decide to join in San Fernando Valley’s Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations:
- Make a plan. Decide ahead of time who will be the designated driver or if you will hire a service, like Uber.
- Buckle your seat belt. If you are hit by a drunk driver, reduce your chance of catastrophic injuries by buckling up.
- Pick your route. It is often a good idea to take the roads less traveled as fewer cars mean less chance of an accident.
- Stick to speed limits.
- Try to stay off the roads after midnight.
These tips are not exhaustive. Use your best judgement when enjoying the St. Patty’s Day festivities.
Despite all precautions, auto accidents still happen.
