Extra funding to pay for the patrols were funded from the North Dakota Department of Transportation. St. Patrick's Day is one of the holidays where the public consumes the most alcohol, behind Christmas, New Years and 4th of July.

Some tips from the BPD to reduce your chance of getting busted are

  • Have a designated driver
  • Call a taxi cab if you're too buzzed to drive
  • Take the keys from someone who is too drunk to operate a vehicle
  • Call 911 if you see a drunk driver on the roads

Have a happy but SAFE St. Patrick's Day celebration.
