CSPD: Don’t let drunk driving spoil Super Bowl Sunday

By Lt. Chuck Fleeger, CSPD Public Information Officer

Super Bowl Sunday is one of the best days of the year for sports fans, but it’s also one of the most dangerous days of the year on our roads.

According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, about 31 percent of traffic fatalities on a typical day involve a drunk driver. On Super Bowl Sunday, that awful number spikes to 43 percent.

Super BowlWe want to see that tragic figure reduced.

The College Station Police Department will deploy extra officers to patrol in the peak hours before, during and after Sunday’s game to proactively identify and apprehend drivers who are a danger.

We hope everyone enjoys the game and the fun festivities that surround it, but please remember to drink in moderation and designate a driver.

  2. Anti drunk driving promotions like this are some of the best ways how to fight DUI charges from ever happening in the first place, through these type of DUI awareness campaigns.
