As one of America’s most anticipated and celebrated sporting events, the Super Bowl brings together families, friends and fans each year to enjoy the excitement of the big game.
The Kentucky State Police encourages fans to enjoy the game, but to make smart choices where alcohol is involved.
The agency will participate in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) campaign called Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk by increasing patrols before, during and after the game.
“Before choosing to drink, choose a sober designated driver. Avoid the unsportsmanlike conduct of driving drunk by handing off your keys so that you, your passengers and everyone on our roads can safely arrive home,” says Tpr. Michael Webb. “Drunk driving is always preventable, and life is too precious to be lost in a senseless tragedy that causes indescribable hardship.”
