Saint Patrick's Day

Enforcement Campaign - Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Each year, St. Patrick’s Day - March 17 - is celebrated with city parades, funny leprechaun hats, and plenty of 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.
