Drunk driving is bad.
That said, here's where police will be setting up "saturation patrols" around the Valley, looking for impaired drivers this weekend, as well as St. Patrick's Day:
- Police in Phoenix will have "saturation patrols" based in six different areas around the city on Friday and Saturday nights.
See East Valley and West Valley DUI patrol locations on page two.
- The East Valley DUI Task Force will be in Gilbert on Friday, then Mesa and Chandler on Saturday, followed by Scottsdale on Sunday, and will be back in Gilbert on St. Patrick's Day.
- The West Valley DUI Task Force will be in Avondale on Saturday, near Dysart Road and Thomas Road.
