St. Patrick Patrols

It's a startling statistic between St. Patrick's day and car accidents.

Police say 59% of all traffic deaths happen in the early morning hours following St. Patrick's Day.

That's why Charleston police are stepping up their patrols this weekend to make sure that people don't take their Irish celebrations on the road.

The department will be increasing their patrols Saturday night and Sunday morning.

D.U.I. checkpoints will also be set-up across town.
