Don’t rely on luck. Choose Your Ride. St. Patrick’s Day is widely celebrated by Americans—Irish and non-Irish alike. The festivities are filled with friends, family, and endless parties. Oftentimes, these parties end with drunk drivers who endanger America’s roads. Drinking and driving accounts for nearly one-third of vehicle-related fatalities in the United States. This St. Patrick’s Day, don’t rely on the Luck o’ the Irish to get you home safely—refrain from drinking and driving. Discuss these drunk-driving facts with your friends and family, plan to celebrate safely, and spread the word about the dangers of drinking and driving. * St. Patrick’s Day has become a deadly holiday for our nation’s roads, due to the number of drunk-driving crashes and fatalities. From 2012 to 2016, the St. Patrick’s Day holiday period (6 p.m. March 16 to 5:59 a.m. March 18) saw the loss of 269 lives due to drunk-driving crashes. In 2016 Drunk driving killed more than 10,000 people in our country, and every single one of those deaths is preventable. Do your part this St. Patrick’s Day to drive sober and ensure your friends do too. * This St. Patrick’s Day, local law enforcement will be patrolling your community to ensure citizens follow the law and refrain from drinking and driving. Doing so not only keeps you safe, but it keeps other vehicle passengers and pedestrians safe. Don’t test your luck this St. Patrick’s Day: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. * If you are caught drinking and driving, you will be arrested. * In 2016 alone, 60 people (39% of all crash fatalities) were killed in drunk-driving crashes over the St. Patrick’s Day holiday period. * Between midnight and 5:59 a.m. March 18, 2016, almost three-fourths (69%) of crash fatalities involved a drunk driver. * Walking home from the bar after a night out partying? That can also be dangerous. In 2016, 34 percent of the pedestrians killed in crashes had a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher. Ask a sober friend to walk you home or arrange for a sober ride.

🥧 Happy Pi Day 🥧 Albert Einstein said, "Do not worry about your difficulties in mathematics. I can assure you that mine are still greater”. Pi, π or 3.14159265359 is representative of the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. Pi is often a numeral factor in many calculations. Pi Day has been celebrated many different ways every year. The most popular illustration of the holiday is to feast on pie, with an e, to honor the number. In 2009, the United States Congress officially recognized Pi Day for a number of reasons including raising awareness of the problems a number of American children are having with the subject of math.
