Establishing "Why" Since 1966

St. Patrick’s Day brings a wealth of entertaining traditions: wearing green, eating corned beef and cabbage, and of course… drinking!

Authorities say that there is a dramatic uptick of alcohol-related incidents on St. Patrick’s Day each year. Because of the dangers associated with drunk driving, law enforcement officers set up a large number of DUI check points throughout the United States on St. Patrick’s Day each year.
