Super Bowl Sunday may very well be America's most highly anticipated sporting event of the year. In many ways, Super Bowl Sunday resembles a holiday. Friends and families gather together, hold celebrations, go out, and – often – enjoy a few drinks. Just as with many other holidays, however, Super Bowl Sunday is also a time notorious for high rates of drunk driving accidents, injuries, and fatalities.
This year, the National Football League (NFL), California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have teamed up with the Orange County law enforcement agencies to create the "Avoid the 38" DUI Task Force. The task force will be focusing on efforts to remind local residents about the dangers of drunk driving, to designate a sober driver this Sunday, and to be aware that increased DUI patrols will be in effect.
As part of the crackdown, Orange County officers will be focusing intently on signs of motorists who exhibit signs of impaired driving. Increased patrols will be conducted before, during, and after the Super Bowl. These anti-DUI campaigns are typically very successful, including the DUI crackdown during the Christmas and New Year's Holiday.
Orange County residents are encouraged to drink responsibly or designate a sober driver this Sunday. If arrested and charged for driving under the influence, you may be subjected to harsh criminal penalties, as well as a suspension or revocation of your driver's license, depending on the circumstances.
