Have a plan if partying during Super Bowl

Warren To Crack Down on Drunk Driving Super Bowl Weekend

According to Const. Clint Stibbe, police in Toronto often see a spike in impaired driving on Super Bowl Sunday, with an average of about 20 arrests each year.

"Regardless of which team wins, everyone loses when drunk drivers are on the roads", Colonel Assumpico said. "The busy holiday season is past, but Super Bowl Sunday is an unofficial holiday in the U.S. Troopers urge all CT residents to proceed with caution as they celebrate with friends and family".

They've even got a name for the drunken-driving crackdown this year: The Trooper Bowl.

"Durham Regional Police would like to advise all motorists that drinking and driving will not be tolerated on our streets".

The DDVIP app helps find nearby bars and restaurants that feature free incentives for the designated sober driver, including free non-alcoholic drinks and appetizers. Those planning to consume alcohol should designate a sober driver to get them home safely. "We have zero tolerance for reckless and impaired driving, and our troopers and local law enforcement agencies will be out in force to keep our roadways safe".

To reduce the potential of drunk drivers, the HCSO recommends Super Bowl partygoers choose a designated driver or plan some other type of transportation before the party begins. Use a taxi, Uber, or Lyft. Consequences of a DUI arrest are jail time, the loss of a driver license, higher insurance rates, court fees, auto towing and fix, and lost wages from time off work.

"Super Bowl fans don't let fans drive drunk".

Encourage your drinking guests to pace themselves, eat food, and drink plenty of water.

· Stop serving alcohol after the third quarter (or half time).

From 2013 to 2014, alcohol impaired driving fatalities increased 14 percent (125 to 143). Efforts will include combatting drug-impaired driving, which accounted for 50 percent of DUI arrests in 2015.

Authorities also recommended that anyone who does drink should "avoid drinking too much alcohol too fast".
