W.Va. plans alcohol enforcement for St. Paddy’s

CHARLESTON (AP) — West Virginia authorities plan extra police patrols and underage drinking checks ahead of St. Patrick’s Day.

Alcohol Beverage Control Administration spokesman Gig Robinson tells the Charleston Daily Mail that the stepped-up enforcement is part of a multi-agency effort to reduce drunken driving and underage drinking during the spring.

The Governor’s Highway Safety Program has provided grant funds to the ABCA for increased alcohol enforcement and compliance during peak drinking times.

Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show drunken drivers were involved in two-fifths of St. Patrick’s Day traffic deaths between 2006 and 2010.
