(INDIANAPOLIS) - All this month, agencies across the state are cracking down on drunk and impaired driving. And with the NCAA tournament and St. Patrick's Day both happening this week, there will be even more patrols out on the roads.

"If you're over the .08 and you are intoxicated and driving, you will go to jail," says Indiana State Trooper Nick Klingkammer. "A couple drinks within an hour or so, will get people to that point."

During the month of March, federal grants pay for overtime during which drunk and impaired drivers are targeted. This week, even more officers will be on the roads along with DUI checkpoints.
