The Super Bowl has become synonymous with drinking and celebrating, making roads on Super Bowl weekend dangerous. That is why as game day quickly approaches the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is teaming up with the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, STOP DWI-NY, and law enforcement to remind football fans that designated drivers are the best defense against the dangers of drunk driving. Super Bowl is a festive night in homes and bars across America, but if your night involves alcohol, plan for a sober ride home. Remember, Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk. While STOP-DWI efforts across New York have led to significant reductions in the numbers of alcohol and drug related fatalities, still too many lives are being lost because of crashes caused by drunk or impaired drivers.

Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving. Sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols play a key part in raising awareness about the problem. Through increased statewide enforcement efforts, raising public awareness through paid, earned, and social media, and by maximizing partnerships and local resources, we can help prevent injuries and save more lives on our roadways.
