On May 5th, the celebration of Cinco de Mayo commemorates the victory of the Mexican Army over French forces during the Battle of Puebla on the same date in 1862. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has become a celebration of Mexican-American culture. For some who choose to celebrate, their excitement could potentially lead to overindulgence.
About Drunk Driving in Connecticut
The Danbury Daily Voice tells us Connecticut leads the nation in the number of drunk-driving deaths. To make things worse, the average Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) among those drunk drivers who were involved in fatal motor vehicle collisions was 0.16. That number is twice the legal limit. With this in mind, Carter Mario Law Firm reminds everyone to behave responsibly and travel safely as they celebrate.
