Enjoy the Super Bowl Responsibly: Choose a Sober Way to Go
Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage, Calif. – The Sheriff’s Department / Palm Desert is reminding football fans to stick to the “go safely” game plan and designate a sober driver if you plan on drinking at a Super Bowl LVI watch party.
On Super Bowl LVI Sunday (Feb. 13) The Sheriff’s Department / Palm Desert will have additional officers on patrol looking for drivers suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
Sheriff’s Department / Palm Desert reminds the public that alcohol is not the only substance that impairs. Marijuana, prescription drugs, and over-the-counter medications can all affect your ability to drive safely. Do your research and understand the potential side effects of certain drugs.
Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
