Let's taco 'bout driving sober on Cinco de Mayo

POSTED ON: 05/05/2022

According to NHTSA, 47 people died in drunk driving crashes during Cinco de Mayo 2019. That accounts for 38% of all traffic deaths during that time.

We all know that Cinco de Mayo translates into margaritas and guacamole in the U.S. But a DUI isn't worth even the smoothest tasting tequila. 

Cinco de Mayo History

Cinco de Mayo means "fifth of May" and is an annual celebration held on May 5th. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken for Mexico's Independence Day which is celebrated on September 16th. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has taken on a significance beyond that in many parts of Mexico. In the U.S., there is a tradition of eating tacos and enchiladas on this holiday. There is also a tradition of drinking tequila and Mexican beer.

Remember: Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving

If you plan on drinking at a Cinco de Mayo celebration somewhere other than your house, make sure you also plan on how you'll get home safely. Whether you're drinking margaritas at home or venturing out to a gathering with others, make sure you do not drink and drive.

Avoid a DUI: It's not worth even the smoothest tasting tequila

There’s no big secret to avoiding a DUI on these alcohol-focused holidays, just don’t drink and drive and you won’t have to worry. A great way to avoid drunk driving is to plan ahead. Your safe driving plan may include a designated driver, a taxi or public transportation, a ridesharing service, staying sober, or something else other than drinking and driving.
