What's better than dressing like a leprechaun, using your (terrible) Irish accent, and drinking Guinness, green beer, or Jameson with your friends on St. Patrick's Day?

Not getting busted for drunk driving, that's what! 

But jokes aside, Arizona, in the age of Uber and Lyft, there's no excuse for being an idiot and getting behind the wheel after imbibing.

We'll spare you the lecture about public safety, but just know that beginning on Thursday, and lasting through the weekend, the roads will be crawling with law enforcement agents waiting to pull over hammered drivers.

Here's where they'll be setting up saturation stations around the Valley of the Sun:

  • Phoenix: 8233 North 7th Street
  • Phoenix: 2700 West Thomas Road
  • Phoenix: 3443 South Central Avenue
  • Phoenix: 2750 West Thunderbird Road
  • Phoenix: 1610 East Highland Avenue
  • Phoenix: 2212 East Bell Road
  • Scottsdale: 7601 East McKellips Road
  • Glendale: 6700 West Bell Road

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
