CONCORD (AP) - New Hampshire State Police are out in force this St. Patrick's Day, looking for drivers who may be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

State police say of the 89 fatal crashes in 2014, nearly 30 percent of them were directly related to alcohol and/or drug impairment.

Police advise that before drinking, designate a sober driver and give that person your keys, or call a taxi or use public transportation if you're impaired. If you notice a vehicle operating erratically and suspect an impaired driver, call 911.
