Leave the Penalties to the Players: Drive Sober!
Increased DUI Enforcement this Super Bowl Weekend.
As you gather with family and friends this Super Bowl Weekend, there’s one important thing to keep in mind: Plan ahead with a sober designated driver. Law enforcement agencies throughout Colorado will have heightened DUI enforcement from 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1 through 3 a.m. Monday, Feb. 4.Designate a Sober Driver or be prepared to pay A LOTof money and take A LOTof classes for your DUI.
During last year’s Super Bowl Weekend enforcement period, 275 drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs during the three-day Heat Is On campaign.
“Over the last two years, there has been a decrease in DUI arrests over the Super Bowl Weekend and we want that trend to continue,” said CDOT Chief Engineer Tim Harris. “If you are heading to a Super Bowl party and plan to drink, please plan ahead and designate a sober driver.”
Last year there were 138 alcohol-related fatalities in Colorado. To combat this, CDOT and law enforcement agencies continue their partnership for the Heat Is On campaign—a year-long high visibility effort that combines a focus on public awareness and increased DUI enforcement.
“Unfortunately the Broncos won’t be playing this coming Sunday, however we know Colorado’s football fans will be watching the Super Bowl and we want to remind them that there is a stiff penalty for drinking and driving,” said Colorado State Patrol Captain Jeff Goodwin. “If you’re celebrating with alcohol, make the smart driving choice and plan ahead before any party or celebration begins by having a designated non-drinking driver. Driving impaired is a crime. And remember to always buckle up— it’s your best defense on the road.”
