Stay Lucky by Driving Sober – Don’t Drink and Drive

May the luck of the Irish be with you!

St. Patrick’s Day is upon us and we at Kaine Law want luck to be on your side. Just like the Irish, the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day tends to involve three things: 1) an abundance of green; 2) a parade; and 3) alcoholic beverages. While we want you to enjoy your holiday, we also want safety to be a part of your plans.

According to Traffic Safety Marketing, from 2009-2013, there were a total of 276 fatalities due to drunk driving car accidents surrounding St. Patrick’s Day.  These statistics alone make St. Patrick’s Day one of the deadliest holidays in Atlanta, across Georgia and throughout the United States. The statistics for 2014 were even more alarming. The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign released some important talking points:

  • Widely celebrated across the country, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the deadliest holidays due to the number of drunk drivers on the road. The St. Patrick’s Day holiday period is from 6:00 p.m. on March 16, 2016 and runs through 5:59 a.m. on March 18, 2016.
  • In 2014, alone, 29 people (28% of all crash fatalities) were killed in drunk-driving accidents over the St. Patrick’s Day holiday period.
  • During post-party hours, between midnight (12:00 a.m.) through 5:59 a.m. nearly half (49%) of all fatal crashes involved a drunk driver.
  • Drunk driving kills more than 10,000 people each year in our country, and every single one of those deaths is preventable.

Drivers are not the only ones at risk for a car accident. Pedestrians are at risk for getting hit by drunk drivers who are under the influence. Festivities begin early in most cities, so people of all ages are at risk of getting hit at the conclusion of parades. Whether the driver or walker is impaired, it is crucial to keep an attentive eye.

St. Patrick’s Day is a cause for celebration, but not one that should take your life or the life of another innocent person. Don’t test your luck this holiday – drive sober!

Testimonial
  • "I was involved in an auto-accident with a drunk driver and after several weeks of frustrating interactions with their insurance company, I decided to contact Evan Kaine. He was upfront and honest about how the process works and never made any promises or raised my expectations. Evan understood that my first priority was to take care of the medical expenses that I incurred and he completely delivered. Communication is essential and I spoke directly with him and was never pawned off to another person. Bottom line - Evan Kaine gives lawyers a good name." - M.T. Atlanta, GA

  • "Evan Kaine is a great attorney who kept me informed on all activity regarding my case. Always willing to go the extra mile to put me at ease. Very knowledgeable and thorough, always examining my case from every angle. I have recommended him to several friends and will continue to do so. Overall great legal service." - B.S. Roswell, GA

  • "My boyfriend Michael was hit by a drunk driver while he was driving my car. Even though I wasn't involved in the accident, Evan made every effort to make the process of getting my new car painless for me. He worked with my insurance company, kept in touch with me personally, and made me aware that he was working on my case around the clock. He also helped Michael get his medical bills paid ASAP. I would highly recommend Evan Kaine! " - B.D. Atlanta, GA

  • "I was in a minor car accident and wasn’t sure that I even had a case. I met with Evan and he explained the law in terms I could understand. I immediately hired him and Evan turned my questionable case into more than $50,000.00! Evan is upfront, honest and expects the same from his clients – and he doesn’t take half of your money! I highly recommend Attorney Evan Kaine." - G.S., Smyrna, Georgia

  • "To everyone LIKE ME who has had to deal with attorneys AND has that bad taste in their mouth because they have been taken advantage of because their lawyers are more interested in making money and not caring about YOU, well please allow me to introduce you to Evan Kaine. I was in a very tight position and Evan could not have been more professional, courteous or kind and, again, HONEST! Once more, as a person who has been through the trials and tribulations with lawyers, good, bad or indifferent, if you have an issue, PLEASE contact Evan and I mean this from the heart!
