St. Patrick’s DWI Enforcement

Area law enforcement agencies say increased traffic stops over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend took some dangerous drivers off the roads. Columbia Police say a checkpoint on Clark Lane early Sunday morning yielded two DWI arrests, and traffic stops elsewhere netted four more. Cole County deputies say they arrested three people for driving while intoxicated, and even found a narcotics violation.

Both agencies say state grant money helped pay for the extra enforcement.
