Discounted Uber Rides for St. Patrick’s Day

Discounted Uber Rides for St. Patricks Day - Hamilton Law Firm

The Hamilton Law Firm specializes in criminal defense cases that often involve DUI’s. We don’t want you to turn a night of fun into a night in jail and criminal charges that could affect you for the rest of your life. Because of this, we are proud to offer discounted Uber rides for upcoming St. Patrick’s Day.

The favorite holiday for the Irish and Irish Americans, and many other people as well, is coming up shortly.  St. Patrick’s Day is our national day for wearing green, pinching those not wearing green, parade-watching, game-playing, overloading on good food, and drinking plenty of Guinness and other alcoholic beverages.  

St. Patrick’s Day is considered one of the heaviest drinking days of the year all across the United States. In Memphis, that holds true every year and leads to dangerous roads and a guaranteed increased number of DUIs. It’s part of the holiday to meet up with your friends at a local pub and have a beer after the work day, but as we all know, one thing can lead to another on St. Patrick’s Day and leave you or a friend entirely too intoxicated to drive.

Whether you’re heading to the Green Jello’s St. Paddy’s Day Music & Comedy Fest, Celtic Crossing, Brass Door, the 45th Annual Beale Street St. Patrick’s Day Parade, or one of the numerous other fun activities or events being held, we want you to have fun!  As with any major holiday that regularly involves drinking, the roads become an increasingly dangerous place.  As the festivities typically last until after 9 p.m., the potential fatigue and excess of alcohol can be a dangerous combination.

The Hamilton Law Firm wants the entire community to have a great and memorable time, but also stay safe.  With that in mind, we are proud to sponsor discounted Uber rides in Memphis, up to a total of $250, on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, between the hours of 12 p.m and 10 p.m.  Each ride will be discounted $5 until the money is exhausted.

A ridesharing company such as Uber, provides an important resource to help keep drivers off the road when they’ve had too much to drink.  Founded in 2009, Uber has 40 million riders and 2 million drivers in 76 countries around the world.  Riders use a smartphone app to hail a private car, which can be tracked via the app so riders and drivers know the ride’s status at all times.

In Memphis, the local police force is prepared and ready to crack down on drunk drivers with checkpoints and heightened roadside security measures throughout the entire city.

The beauty of Uber and other rideshare apps is that it becomes a lot easier to responsibly get from point A to point B when you’re out drinking with your friends and trying to have a fun holiday celebration. Uber has been an incredible resource for helping make Memphis’ roads much safer since 2009, and today in 2018, it’s par for the course to Uber when you’ve been drinking. Sometimes people are reluctant to take Ubers on days like St. Patrick’s Day because so many people are on the app and the prices start to surge, and that’s why we’re excited to help keep the costs down for you as you make the conscious effort to travel safely.

Using an Uber will help you avoid a drunk driving conviction.  DUI laws in Tennessee call for at least 48 hours in jail and a fine for a first-time offender, and penalties are progressively more serious for subsequent convictions.  Refusing to take a breathalyzer results in an automatic one-year license suspension, since Tennessee has implied consent laws.  Your fine is the least of the potential financial trouble, as you could also pay higher insurance rates, court costs, bail, and attorney fees.

As you can see, the consequences of driving under the influence are serious.  Avoiding these consequences are simple.  Plan before the game to have a designated driver, or let The Hamilton Law Firm save you some money on an Uber.  Fill out the form below to apply for a discount code.  The first 50 people will have a code emailed to them.
