Super Bowl Weekend Alert

Press Release Date: January 23, 2001    || Archived October 3, 2002
SPRINGFIELD, IL - The Illinois State Police (ISP) announced today that officers will be especially alert this Super Bowl weekend for alcohol-related offenses.

Director Sam W. Nolen said, "Education and enforcement are effective tools in reducing drunk driving crashes, injuries, and fatalities originating from Super Bowl events. The ISP would also like to emphasize that holidays are not the only time to exercise caution regarding alcohol-related traffic crash risks. Super Bowl Sunday, and other special occasions throughout the year, can prove to be just as dangerous for alcohol-related crashes."

The ISP encourages motorists to follow these preventive measures this Super Bowl Sunday:

Don’t drink and drive. Use a designated driver if attending a party. Call a friend or family member for a ride if you have been drinking.

If hosting a Super Bowl party, be responsible. Serve non-alcoholic drinks, encourage those that do drink to have a designated driver, and, if necessary, take car keys from partygoers and don't let them drive drunk.

If you observe an erratic driver while traveling, try to stay behind the vehicle and out of harm's way. If it's safe to do so, pull over and call 911 or alert the local police, providing a detailed description of the vehicle and its location.
