Luck of the Irish…

…actually, with St. Patrick’s Day approaching, the Dane County Sheriff’s Office reminds you to NOT rely on the “Luck of the Irish” to stay safe on the roads.  Don’t get behind the wheel if you have had too much to drink.  Grant money from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation will allow additional patrol officers on duty to stop drunk drivers, tonight through St. Patrick’s Day.

Plan ahead for a fun and safe St. Patrick’s Day celebration – designate a sober driver BEFORE the party starts.  The Wisconsin Department of Transportation offers a free “Drive Sober” app that includes a blood-alcohol estimator, a designated driver selector, and a find-a-ride feature that will help locare nearby taxi and mass transit services.  Go to to download the app.
