Authorities to Increase DUI Patrols During Super Bowl Sunday

Authorities in Glendora and around the area are giving Super Bowl fans a choice this weekend: drink OR drive.

With funding from the California Office of Traffic Safety, Glendora Police Officers will deploy roving DUI saturation patrols during and after the Super Bowl matchup on Sunday, February 1. The “Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk” patrols will take place at undisclosed locations where statistically high volumes of DUI crashes and arrests have been recorded, authorities said in a written statement.

“Drunk driving is completely preventable,” said Glendora Police Chief Tim Staab. “All it takes is a little planning. We want fans to remember that it’s a choice. Drink or drive, but never do both.”

Police urge partygoers that if they do decide to drink, that they should make plans in advance to help prevent the possibility of them drunk driving and to use a designated driver. Police also urge residents to be mindful of certain medications and the effect alcohol may have on them.

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and the California Highway Patrol will also be part of the “Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive” patrols.
