The holiday has origins in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, held in mid-February. The festival, which celebrated the coming of spring, included fertility rites and the pairing off of women with men by lottery. At the end of the 5th century, Pope Gelasius I replaced Lupercalia with St. Valentine’s Day.

If you’re affected by alcohol or other drugs after a night out, trying to drive or ride home will put you and other road users in danger. Alcohol and other drugs (illegal, prescription and over-the-counter) can slow your reflexes, reduce coordination and increase risk taking behaviour, making a crash more likely.

More than one third of all fatal drink driving crashes occur between 9 pm and 3 am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. In this 18-hour peak social period, your chances of being in a fatal alcohol-related crash are much higher than at any other time during the week.
