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
