California Highway Patrol Impaired Driving Enforcement Super Bowl Sunday February 7 2021.
Football fans may have to come up with a new game plan for this year’s Super Bowl festivities, but the California Highway Patrol (CHP) still reminds everyone to put safety first.
Residents should stay close to home and limit non-essential travel to reduce the transmission of COVID-19.
Always Buckle Up
Leave Plenty of Time to Get to Your Destination
CHP officers will be on high alert for impaired drivers this weekend.
Alcohol is not the only substance that can lead to an arrest for driving under the influence (DUI). Cannabis, prescription medications, and illegal drugs can all impair your ability to drive.
Four people died in alcohol-involved collisions in California on Super Bowl Sunday last year, and 120 people were injured.
In addition, the CHP made more than 300 DUI arrests that day.
If you are hosting a Super Bowl party, be a team player and help keep impaired drivers from getting behind the wheel.
Have non-alcoholic choices for the designated drivers and ask guests to make proper arrangements and designate a sober driver before the big game begins.
The public can help by calling 9-1-1 if they suspect an impaired driver.
Callers should be prepared to give the vehicle’s description, location, license plate number, and direction of travel.
