What started as a religious holiday to celebrate the introduction of Christianity to Ireland by St. Patrick has become a day for everyone to simply celebrate.

On March 17th, the green beer will flow as freely as water. St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner and many a reveler will raise their alcoholic beverages in "Slinte Mhath" (good health). To ensure that toast can be honored, drinkers need to take heed and stay accident free on St. Patrick's Day.

Every year, binge drinking becomes a national past time for St. Patrick's Day. When that occurs, judgement becomes impaired. People deny their inebriated state and drunk driving statistics skyrocket. The risk of increased auto insurance claims, fatalities and prison time are all amazing reasons to call a cab instead of driving.

Drivers navigating the roadways on St. Patrick's Day are 23 percent more likely to be killed or injured in an alcohol-related crash.

Forbes also lists St. Patrick's Day as one of the most dangerous holidays for driving:

Thanksgiving
Independence Day
Memorial Day Weekend
Labor Day Weekend
New Year's Eve Day
Halloween
Christmas
St. Patrick's Day
Cinco de Mayo

Around all these annual celebrations, law enforcement agencies are out in force. If you are caught at any checkpoints or are involved in any  alcohol related accidents, these types of infractions will go on your permanent record.

Once your insurance provider finds out (and they will find out) you can expect a painful increase in your auto insurance rates.

Shamrocks Lucky?

There's no proof that luck stems from shamrocks. However, it's a fact there are four leaves on a lucky clover and four U.S. towns named Shamrock. Coincidence? Probably. What's probably not a coincidence, however, is that the color of the shamrock caused a switch in the traditional color associated with St. Patrick and Ireland - from blue to green.
