According to Ontario Provincial Police, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most dangerous days on the roadways because of impaired driving.
If you’re hosting a party tonight, officers say to make sure everyone has a safe ride home or a place to stay.
When drinking responsibly, make sure to properly measure drinks and to serve them yourself, rather than having a self-serve bar.
They also say to have water, food, and snacks on hand for your guests, and to monitor how much your guests are drinking.
When serving alcoholic beverages, OPP are reminding hosts that you are ultimately responsible for your guests.
