Extra law enforcement will be on the roads looking for impaired drivers in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties over St. Patrick’s Day weekend, March 15-17.

“Don’t press your luck this weekend. Make sure you and your friends get home safely,” Dr. David Fleming, Director and Health Officer for Public Health – Seattle & King County said in a statement. “If you plan to drink, designate a sober driver, ride the bus or take a cab.”

The Washington State Liquor Control Board also will visit local bars to educate employees about the extra DUI patrols and responsible service. Officers will hand out “Click 2 Ride” cards with information about taxi services that bars can share with patrons. Read more
