St. Patrick’s Day — March 17th — is one of the biggest drinking nights of the year, and that, unfortunately, means more drunk drivers on the roads. During the St. Patrick’s Day period from 2015 through 2019, 280 lives were lost in drunk-driving crashes. Always remember to plan ahead if you will be celebrating. If you plan to drink, plan for a sober driver to take you home. The Mifflin County DUI Task Force will conduct enforcement efforts beginning today (March 11th), and running through March 21st. The Task Force is comprised of police officers from the Lewistown, Armagh Township, Granville Township, and Mifflin County Regional Police Departments.
