St. Patrick’s Day: a holiday where “everybody’s Irish” and people guzzle green beer with their corned beef and cabbage. But this traditionally boozy day is also a very dangerous one when it comes to drinking and driving.

Take a look at this free downloadable infographic highlighting the shocking statistics of St. Patrick’s Day drinking and driving. You don’t want to push your luck this St. Paddy’s Day—plan your sober ride home in advance.
