DON’T GET SUPER BUSTED ON SUPER BOWL SUNDAY BY DRIVING IMPAIRED

LAW ENFORCEMENT WILL BE OUT LOOKING FOR IMPAIRED DRIVERS

  Super Bowl Fans - Don't Let Fans Drive Drunk

CORONA, CA– The Corona Police Department is encouraging all football fans to celebrate Super Bowl LIII responsibly by not driving impaired, or letting other fans get behind the wheel when they shouldn’t.  “Have a game plan for the big game by making sure you have a safe way to get home,” said Sergeant Chad Fountain. “Your best defense against impaired driving is to use a designated sober driver.”

On February 3, 2019, the Corona Police Department will increase patrols for Super Bowl Sunday. Additional officers will be on duty to look for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. 

DUI Doesn't Just Mean BoozeThe Corona Police Department also reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI.

If you’re hosting a party, be a team player and have plenty of snacks and non-alcoholic drinks available for designated sober drivers. Be sure to monitor who is drinking and how they are getting home. If you plan to drink, don’t plan to drive. Even one drink can be one too many. Have a sober friend be the “MVP” and get you home, use ride-share, or take public transportation. Anyone who sees a drunk driver should call 9-1-1.

Safely California

No matter who you are rooting for on Super Bowl Sunday, we are all on the same team when the game ends so remember to go safely.  Funding for Super Bowl Sunday enforcement is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If you would like to learn more about this campaign, please call Sergeant Bryan Snow at 951-739-4885 or email Bryan.Snow@CoronaCA.gov.
