Michigan State Police is urging drivers to be safe on the roads during St. Patrick's Day as they will be patrolling for impaired driving as part of Operation C.A.R.E. This Saturday, MSP troopers will join troopers from around the country in the traffic safety initiative. Operation C.A.R.E. stands for crash awareness and reduction efforts. “We encourage everyone to celebrate safely this St. Patrick’s Day,” said Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue, director of the MSP. “As always, our troopers are taking a zero tolerance approach to those who choose to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Plan ahead and designate a sober driver.” It will begin at 12:01 a.m. Saturday and continue through 11:59 p.m. With St. Patrick's Day falling on a Saturday, it's expected that revelers will be out bright and early and continue all day. On top of that, round 2 of March Madness will be in full swing the afternoon.
