The Champaign Police Department announced today it will conduct special patrols this Super Bowl weekend to keep impaired drivers off the roads and encourage motorists to wear their seat belts. The messages are familiar and simple: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket.
“We need your help to keep alcohol and drug-impaired drivers off our roads,” said Sergeant Brian Maloney. “All it takes is a game plan. Before you go to the party, make a plan for a safe ride home.”
“We will also be checking for compliance with seat belt laws,” Maloney said. “Remember to buckle up.”
The Champaign Police Department’s Super Bowl enforcement effort is made possible by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
