The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is reminding football fans to stick to the “go safely” game plan and designate a sober driver if you plan on drinking at a Super Bowl LVI watch party. Over the Super Bowl LVI weekend (February 11-13, 2022), the LAPD will have additional officers on patrol looking for drivers suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
“If you plan to have a drink or two, choose a sober way to get to and from wherever you are watching the game,” said Commander Pasos, Commanding Officer, Traffic Group. “Have a ride-hailing service or a family member who hasn’t been drinking take you home.”
The LAPD reminds the public that alcohol is not the only substance that impairs. Marijuana, prescription drugs, and over-the-counter medications can all affect your ability to drive safely. Do your research and understand the potential side effects of certain drugs.
“When it comes to getting to and from places safely, we’re all on the same team,” said Commander Pasos. “The choice is simple: Don’t drive impaired.”
