The Southern Arizona DUI Task Force will participate in a statewide DUI patrol saturation starting Friday.

The Pima County Sheriff's Office is one among several agencies that are taking part in the endeavor to crack down on drivers under the influence during the weekend leading up to St. Patrick's Day.

"This time, they're going to be all over watching for you. We just want people to be careful when they do go out and make smart decisions, not to drink and drive," said Tracy Suitt, public information officer with the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

The patrol saturation will take place from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. starting Friday until Monday.

Marana Police and Pima Community College Police are also participating in the event.

Bars are also bracing themselves for a busy weekend, which ushers in the beginning of spring break for college students.

O'Malleys on 4th Avenue expects large crowds through the weekend.

"Just be careful, there's going to be a lot of green beer flowing, a lot of Guinness, so drink responsibly, take a cab, drink a lot of beer and be safe," said O'Malleys general manager Frank Alvarado.
