Albany-- It could be a dangerous night on south Georgia roads. It's a Friday and St. Patrick's Day and law enforcers expect more people to drink and drive.

The Georgia State Patrol expects an increase in cars and pedestrians for St. Patrick's Day celebrations. But as people party, troopers say they're watching for impaired drivers. They suggest having a sober, designated driver in each group or have extra money ready for a cab.

Also, don't be afraid to take the keys from friends who drink and want to drive. Troopers say these easy tips can prevent serious consequences.

"The worst, you can end up dead on the side of the road or killing somebody else. We're going to tow your car. We're going to take you to jail. You're going to be paying fines for a long time and court costs for a long time," says Trooper Scott McClure with Georgia State Patrol.

Troopers expect more accidents this weekend and encourage you to use extra caution on the roads.
