Wear Green and Drive Safely
March 17th is Saint Patrick’s Day, an occasion often marked by the eating of corned beef and cabbage and the drinking of green beer. With COVID-19 related restrictions beginning to ease up throughout California’s counties, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) issued a press release this week stating that they will be on high alert for impaired drivers during the Irish holiday. The press release was issued in conjunction with the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to remind state residents to drive safely. Buckle up, avoid distractions, slow down, and do not drive while impaired, advises the CHP Commissioner. Those that choose to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day by imbibing should always have a safe ride home planned in advance.
