Colorado State Patrol and other law enforcement agencies are warning of increased DUI patrols this Superbowl weekend. Last year, there were 330 DUI arrests over the weekend.
Authorities are asking people to pace themselves during the game, recommending people eat plenty, take breaks from drinking and stop drinking well before driving. Even eating, taking breaks and stopping before driving does not guarantee you are safe to drive. Police will be out in full force looking for drunk drivers. You can be pulled over even if you are driving just fine. Police can stop you for expired license plates, a broken tail lamp, or a cracked windshield and if you have been drinking, it can quickly turn into a DUI investigation.
Be safe and smart this weekend. Don’t risk it.
