Going out for St. Patty's Day? One company is giving you not one, but one thousand reasons to not drink and drive.

It's one of the most popular drinking holidays of the year, whether you are actually Irish or not. However in Central New York, most of us do have green in our blood and orange in our beards. So the odds of drinking beer all day long are pretty high in and around Utica.


Luckily for you, this law firm has your back.

1,000 Free Ride Vouchers

Thanks to William Mattar Law Offices, you won't have to worry about paying for a ride this weekend. They are giving away 1,000 Uber ride discount vouchers, ensuring you will get back home safely.

The promotion kicked off on March 1st and will run until March 16th. That is unless all Uber Vouchers have been distributed, since they only go to the first 1,000 eligible applicants.

Drinking & Driving is NEVER an Option

Though it's illegal in every state, one person is killed from a drunk-driving crash every 45 minutes in the United States. It is never okay for you or someone else to get behind the wheel when impaired.

There's no quick way to become sober either. The average rate your body processes alcohol is at one drink per hour, meaning time is the only solution. So if you do plan to drink, don't plan on driving either.

This isn't to discourage you from drinking all together! You can always ask a sober friend to drive you home, call a taxi, or use any other ride service like Uber.
