Local Cops Warn Of the Effects and Consequences Of Green Beer

MARQUETTE, IA (Ben Caxton) — If you are heading out to a St. Patrick’s Day celebration this year, make sure you have more than just the luck o’ the Irish on your side. This holiday, March 17, 2020, is one of the biggest drinking nights of the year and that, unfortunately, means more impaired drivers on the roads. Drunk driving accounts for nearly one-third of vehicle related fatalities in the United States. Nationally, in 2018 alone, 73 people – nearly 40% of all crash fatalities – were killed in drunk-driving crashes over the St. Patrick’s Day holiday period and 33% of the pedestrians aged 16 and older killed in crashes had a blood alcohol concentration at or above .08. To combat the increased impaired driving around the holiday local law agencies will be stepping up traffic enforcement March 14 — 17, 2020. Officers will especially be watching for drunk and drugged drivers and anyone not wearing seat belts.
