For a lot of Michigan residents, St. Patrick’s Day is an important celebration of Irish heritage. Though not a national holiday, for many people, the Catholic saint’s day is a time for good food, drinking, and fellowship. But when the party is over, the team at Christensen Law wants to make sure you get a “Safe Ride Home”.
St. Patrick’s Day is a time for wearing green, drinking, and celebrating with friends. For some, the festivities start with breakfast and continue throughout the day.
But all that drinking comes at a cost. Between 2009 and 2013, 276 people nationwide lost their lives because someone made the bad decision to drink and drive on St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick’s Day Drunk Driving Infographic
A Safe Ride Home for St. Patrick’s Day
Christensen Law wants to make sure you and your loved ones don’t become part of that statistic. Founder David Christensen says:
“We want to decrease the number of people killed on Michigan roads each year. The number rose 10 percent in 2015 compared with the previous year.”
As an auto accident attorney, David Christensen has seen far too many people suffer because of a drunk driving accident. For years he has been involved with organizations such as the Washtenaw Council on Alcoholism, Spectrum Treatment and Prevention Services, and others that deal with alcohol/drug addiction. That’s why he’s offering special help.
That’s why Christensen Law will be extending its “Safe Ride Home” program to cover St. Patrick’s Day.
“We have every reason to believe our ‘Safe Ride Home’ program has saved the lives of people who over-celebrated on Thanksgiving Eve and New Year’s Eve,” says Christensen. “We’ve helped more than 250 people return home safely, and we want to continue offering that service to the community.”
