Officials warn drivers not to drink and drive this St. Patrick's weekend

Saint Patrick’s Day is this weekend and many of Georgia's residents are ready to paint their town green and celebrate. But authorities said St. Patty's Day is one of the deadliest holidays due to drunk drivers on the road.

Officials are warning residents ahead of time that if plans involve alcohol, not to get behind the wheel.

Several governments and law enforcement agencies have partnered up to make the safe and sober driving coalition TEAM Georgia.

They held a news conference Tuesday telling residents to plan ahead.

The AAA Tow-To-Go service was also mentioned. Georgia drivers can get a free tow and ride home up to ten miles.

That will begin Friday evening and end at 6 a.m. Sunday.
