Reporting Deputy: Deputy Joshua Fransik
File # N/A
Indian Wells, Palm Desert, and Rancho Mirage Calif. – The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office is reminding football fans that there’s no “DUI” in team. If you’re heading out to a Super Bowl party and you plan on drinking, make sure you stick to the “Go Safely” game plan and choose a sober way to go.
During Super Bowl LVII weekend (Feb. 11 & 12), the Riverside Sheriff’s Office will have additional officers on patrol looking for drivers suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
“We want the football fans in our community to enjoy Super Bowl festivities, but we also want responsible drivers on our roads,” Deputy Joshua Fransik said. “Before you grab a drink, make sure your game plan includes scheduling a ride-share or designating a sober driver. Choosing a safer way to go is something we can all root for.”
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office reminds the public that alcohol is not the only substance that impairs. Marijuana, prescription medications, and over-the-counter drugs may also impair your ability to drive safely. Do your research and understand how certain drugs may affect you.
