NC Highway Safety’s ‘Booze It and Lose It’ in effect this week

As the holiday known for heavy imbibing, St. Patrick’s Day, gets underway this week, the North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Program is reminding motorists to refrain from drinking and driving.

The St. Patrick’s Day Booze It & Lose It Campaign takes place Mar. 14-20 across the state. Patrols will increase throughout 100 counties. Law enforcement officers will be ensuring driver safety by removing impaired drivers from roads and highways.

Driving while under the influence is dangerous and illegal, highway safety reminded, and those who are caught may potentially face jail time, license suspension, and fines.
