Tampa’s Gasparilla Celebration Precaution January 21, 2016/ Posted By : Laura Turbe/ 0 comments / Under : Auto Accidents Avoid Drunk Driving Accidents in Tampa Yo Ho! Yo Ho! Tampa’s long-standing, annual Gasparilla celebration is about to kick off with a variety of pirate-themed events. A popular tradition since 1905, the season will start with the Children’s Gasparilla Extravaganza on January 23, followed by the Gasparilla Invasion and Parade of Pirates on January 30, Illuminated Knight Parade, Gasparilla Festival of the Arts, Gasparilla Music Festival, and Gasparilla Film Festival. In between the pirate-themed fun, Super Bowl Sunday will be on February 7. Without question, there will certainly be many opportunities to celebrate over the next month in Tampa. All of the festivities will cause traffic congestion all along Tampa’s roads and interstates; thus, there will be an increased risk for car accidents in Tampa Bay. Unfortunately, there is a likelihood that the partygoers will overindulge in alcohol and attempt to drive home. When a person selfishly chooses to drink and drive, he is placing his life at risk, as well as the lives of every other person on the road. The injuries and deaths that result from drunk-driving accidents are preventable. Please celebrate responsibly by choosing not to drink and drive and by requesting others to do the same.
