Cinco de Mayo means increase of drunk driving

It seems that nearly every month throughout the year there is a holiday for Americans to go out and celebrate. Our country has our own holidays to celebrate like Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, Labor Day and Thanksgiving. Plus we go out and embrace other holidays such as Saint Patrick's Day and Cinco de Mayo, which celebrates Mexico's victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. And, with these holidays, many throughout the United States, including those from the Lehighton, Pennsylvania area, go out with friends to have a few drinks.
