Make designating a sober driver your game plan Super Bowl Sunday


As millions tune in Sunday night to watch the New England Patriots take on the L.A. Rams in Super Bowl 53, the Massachusetts State Police will be deployed in large numbers across the state, including at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

Riverside police have announced that they'll be conducting special traffic enforcement patrols on Super Bowl weekend, February 1-3 to take impaired drivers off the road and enforce state seatbelt laws. "Sober driving isn't the only law that should be followed. It's your best defense in a crash". The Ohio State Highway Patrol is urging fans to be safe this Sunday by refraining from driving while impaired.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said to make sure no one under the age of 21 years old should consume alcohol and to make sure their guest have a sober way home. Stop serving alcohol at the end of the third quarter.

"Driving under the influence is still the number one cause for traffic crashes and fatalities, during the holidays, and Super Bowl weekend is no different", said ISP Acting Director Brendan Kelly.

In Boston, assets from the MSP Division of Field Services, including patrols, tactical units, and teams specially trained in crowd control will assist the Boston Police Department.

ISP would like to remind the public to drive sober, don't speed, limit distractions, and buckle up.
