It's looking like it will be a crazy weekend here in the Hudson Valley thanks to St. Patrick's Day falling on a Saturday.

Obviously, with St. Patrick's Day comes drinking. Irish bars throughout the valley will be packed with residents in their best green outfits. While everyone is encouraged to have fun this weekend, we're also here to remind you to be responsible.

According to Spectrum News, Ulster County will put in place DWI checkpoints over the weekend. These checkpoints will ensure that everyone on the road this St. Patrick's Day weekend will be safe.

The DWI crackdown will start on Friday March 16th and end on Sunday March 18th all throughout New York State.

Govorner Andrew Cuomo stated in a press release last week "State Police and local law enforcement are out in full force to stop irresponsible, reckless driving and protect New Yorkers this St. Patrick's Day This comprehensive campaign will ramp up statewide enforcement efforts, hold impaired drivers accountable and crack down on underage drinking to keep our roadways safe and avoid needless tragedies."
