Don't Be Stupid: Cops Prowling For St. Patrick's Day DUI Arrests

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com has received tweets, emails, press releases and advisories from police departments up and down the South Florida coast. To put it simply: there is going to be a massive police presence today and tonight when it comes DUI saturation patrols. If you are planning to celebrate St. Patrick’s day by drinking, please do yourself — and everyone in the community — a favor by calling a cab or designating a non-drinking driver.

Note that the average cost to you once you’re charged with DUI is $10,000 in legal fees and fines, not to mention the humiliation you’ll feel when we publish your mugshot, and the amount of time you’ll spend in court, traffic school and asking others to drive you while your license is suspended.

Have a safe — and smart — St. Patrick’s Day.
