Hartford Car Insurance: Don’t Test Your Luck this St.Patrick’s Day

Hartford Car Insurance: Don't Test Your Luck this St.Patrick's DayThe looming rainy weather this weekend might dampen the spirits of thousands of Connecticut residents hoping to catch a glimpse of the Hartford St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Due to forecasts of adverse weather, Hartford police announced this week that the parade will be rescheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, March 21 in hopes of avoiding any complications due to icy and wet weather.

For many Americans, the observance of St. Patrick’s day is synonymous with enjoying Irish spirits, beer and liquor. Police officials regularly report increased numbers of traffic accidents, violations and DUI citations around the St. Patrick’s holiday. National DUI crash statistics reveal the majority of incidents occur on weekends and later in the early hours of the morning as motorists are making their way home after celebrating. Although St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year, many law enforcement officials have stated that there will be DUI checkpoints set up throughout the state, and surrounding areas, for a period that spans both weekends before and after the holiday.

Intoxicated drivers are not the only threat to Connecticut motorists this year. The holiday combined with the potentially wet and snowy weather will likely increase the risk of being involved in an accident. The combination of these two conditions can spell disaster for many drivers this St. Patrick’s day weekend. In icy, snowy and wet conditions, Connecticut motorists need to maintain as much control over their vehicles as possible, as well as be able to react quickly and efficiently in an unexpected situation. Driving under the influence of any substance can greatly impair reaction times and a motorist’s ability to adapt to these conditions. Officials are urging motorists to stay sober and exercise extra caution this week to prevent and avoid potentially deadly accidents.
