We are trying to spread the message and have teamed up with the National Highway Safety Administration to have extra patrols around the time of St. Patrick's Day.

While this year’s celebration may look a little different in our community, however you celebrate, make sure you and your friends stay safe this year by remembering one important piece of advice: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. This means that if you plan to drink any alcoholic beverage, it’s essential that you plan for a sober designated driver beforehand.

If you’ve been drinking, make the right choice to find a sober driver to get you, and your friends, home safely. Before you put your keys in the ignition, remind yourself: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving.
