DUNCANSVILLE, BLAIR COUNTY - St. Patrick's Day is next Monday and with a lot of people celebrating this weekend, local and state law enforcement says they will be on full alert.

The Blair County DUI Task Force is planning roving patrols to try and crack down on people drinking and driving. On Wednesday they were warning people about some of the myths that come along with drinking, including drinking coffee and taking cold showers to help people sober up.

During the enforcement, officers will be watching for drivers who exhibit signs of impairment by drugs and/or alcohol. The patrols will take place throughout the county.
