 Local, county and state law enforcement officials say they're stepping up patrols to catch drunken drivers during a period that includes St. Patrick's Day, the NCAA men's and women's basketball tournaments and spring break.

The Michigan State Police said this week that officers from 144 agencies in 26 counties are part of the crackdown that runs through April 7th. The effort is coordinated by the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning and receives federal traffic safety funds. Like 89.1 WEMU on Facebook and follow us on Twitter
