Super Bowl Is Coming; Please Don’t Drink and Drive, Says CHP

FootballPress release from the California Highway Patrol:

On Sunday, February 4, football fans across the country will gather with friends and family to watch Super Bowl LII. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is teaming up with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to remind motorists to designate a sober driver before the game begins.

“Drunk driving is completely avoidable, but continues to be a serious problem,” CHP Acting Commissioner Warren Stanley said. “We want motorists to remember that drinking and driving is a choice that can have catastrophic results. If you choose to drink, do not drive.”

According to preliminary data from the CHP’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System, during last year’s Super Bowl, one person was killed in an alcohol-involved collision and 41 others were injured on California’s roadways. That same day, there were 247 arrests made by the CHP for driving under the influence (DUI). Consequences of a DUI arrest are jail time, the loss of a driver license, higher insurance rates, court fees, car towing and repair, and lost wages from time off work.

“There are no excuses when it comes to driving under the influence,” Acting Commissioner Stanley added. “Have a game plan ready to avoid a tragedy. Leave your car keys at home if you will be consuming alcoholic beverages, and use public transportation, a designated driver, or a ride-hailing service to stay safe.”

If you are hosting a Super Bowl party, be a team player and help keep impaired drivers from getting behind the wheel. Make proper arrangements and designate your sober driver before the big game begins. And remember: Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.

The public can help by calling 9-1-1 if they suspect a drunk driver. Callers should be prepared to give the vehicle’s description, location, license plate number, and direction of travel.

The mission of the CHP is to provide the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security.

    The blood draw is the best way of dealing with legal weed…

    roll up your sleeve, neo hippie!

    roll it up or move away….

  • Cop try’s to arrest hippy for driving stoned and says he’s gonna draw blood. Hippy says he’s a hemophiliac….. cops says ok ,how about a breathalyzer? Hippy says he has asthma…. cop says ok! Walk this line straight with one foot in front of the other! Hippy says I can’t do that either….cop says why not? Hippy says,I’m fukn stoned off my ass!

  • Yep, nothing like watching a bunch of grown ass men whine and complain about inequality as they make millions of dollars playing a kids game. I’d have to be shit face just to make it through the stupid game, even the commercials suck these days.

    • You’ve completely missed the point, as you judged a bunch a guys, using their national platform, to shine the light on injustice. You ever think, one of their family or families friends etc may have been hurt? That maybe they’re not just bling bling spoiled brats, farting hot air out your tv, for attention? Or are you just regurgitating the bird seed you were fed?

      Did you not ever think beyond the wall in your forehead? As you sit all kush in your pad, typing away your opinion. Do you have to worry, your kids, relatives or friends, will live to see another day, after a simple traffic stop?

  • All commercials must pertain to POC or LBGQRS or it’s labeled as neo nazisim. Dam. Takes all the humor out🤪
