This is NOT the Time for an Option Play
Feb. 3, 2016 - The Super Bowl is America’s most watched national sporting event. On Sunday, Feb. 7, there will be lots of Super Bowl 50 socializing that may include drinking. That’s why the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the California Office of Traffic Safety and law enforcement officials statewide are urging football fans to call the play now: drinking OR driving. If you plan on drinking on Super Bowl Sunday, designate a sober driver to get you home safely.
Redlands Police will deploy additional officers on special DUI saturation patrols during Super Bowl weekend specifically to stop and arrest drivers showing signs of alcohol or drug impairment during and following the game.
