Each year, St. Patrick’s Day - March 17 - is celebrated with city parades, funny leprechaun hats, and plenty o’ green beer. Unfortunately, it often ends with risky drunk drivers taking to the streets when the parties end. Drunk driving accounts for nearly one-third of vehicle-related fatalities in the United States. This St. Patrick’s Day weekend, remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. If you plan to go out and enjoy the evening with alcohol, make sure you refrain from driving. Deputies will be cracking down on impaired drivers this weekend.
