  • A warning for party-goers this Super Bowl weekend

Police will be looking for drivers impaired by alcohol, marijuana and other legal and illegal substances.

In 2016, there were 10,497 fatalities in motor vehicle traffic crashes involving drunk drivers, according to AAA.

"If you're an National Football League fan, you plan your Super Bowl for weeks".

Law enforcement officers are out in full force targeting drunk drivers.

Illinois State Police remind Super Bowl revelers that they'll be watching for impaired drivers Sunday. Sober designated drivers should be sure to carry the ball and refrain from drinking alcohol. "Impaired driving can result in serious crashes, injuries or death".

For many fans, Super Bowl Sunday means football on our TV, snacks on our plate and often beer in our glass, but it can also mean an increase of drunk driving in our streets.




Designate - or be - a sober driver. They can, of course, enjoy food and non-alcoholic beverages instead.

"Troopers will be attentive to all roads and highways across the state for the possibility of drivers operating impaired, before, during and after the game", the agency said. The options include using public transportation, calling a taxi or using a rideshare program such as Uber and Lyft.

Despite the many options for sober driving, one person is killed every hour in a drunk-driving crash in the United States.

He also urged people to call 911 if they see a possible a drunken driver.

For those who are unable to secure a friend to drive them home, the Office of Traffic Safety has a DDVIP application available as a free download on Apple and Android devices. Take the keys and make alternate arrangements.
