The Maryland Transportation Authority Police want to remind you that if you’re 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. St. Patrick’s Day is one of the biggest drinking nights of the year, and this, unfortunately, means more drunk drivers on the roads. This St. Patrick’s Day weekend remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. If you plan to go out and enjoy the evening with alcohol, make a plan for a sober ride home. If you’re hosting the party, take care of the designated drivers.

Approximately one-third of all crash deaths in Maryland involve drunk drivers. These are the deaths of our loved ones, friends, co-workers and community members. The MDTA Police are enforcing impaired driving laws to save lives. If you are impaired behind the wheel you will be arrested.

A DUI charge in Maryland can lead to license suspensions, ignition interlock devices for every car you drive, court costs, and jail time. Try impressing a date or co-workers with that. Or better yet, try explaining that to your kids.

Keeping Marylanders safe on our roadways is a priority for the Maryland Transportation Authority Police. By implementing traffic enforcement initiatives on impaired driving, seat belt use, aggressive driving, distracted driving and work zone safety, the MDTA Police are improving safety on our roads for drivers, passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists.

The MDTA Police’s goal is to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities due to motor vehicle crashes. The MDTA Police support Maryland’s Zero Deaths campaign – a partnership to save lives and prevent injuries on Maryland’s roadway. For more information, visit zerodeathsmd.com.
