Police remind festival goers to plan ahead


To help you make Savannah St. Patrick's Day the best day possible - they're suggesting some do's and don'ts. 

For example, Savannah-Chatham Metro Police recommend planning ahead. Whether it's a longtime tradition or this is your first - it's smart to go over the schedules and get familiar with when no parking areas will be enforced and more.

"We're going to have officers out handling that. [The Georgia State Patrol] is going be assisting us, and [we] really want to make sure that when you come down you drink in moderation. Don't get behind the wheel and do something that you would regret later - or something that you're going to get stopped for - or end up hurting someone else," said Sgt. Edward Grant, the coordinator of special events for the police department.
