Madison (Press Release) - Allowing the opposing team zero points undoubtedly would lead to victory in the Super Bowl. Like the 49ers and Ravens, the State Patrol and its law enforcement partners will strive for a shutout on Super Bowl Sunday—zero deaths and injuries from traffic crashes.
"Officers will be particularly focused on preventing drunken driving on Super Bowl Sunday because football fans will be at bars and parties before, during and after the game. That's why we are urging fans to not let their fellow fans drive drunk. The key is to plan ahead by designating a sober driver or finding alternative transportation," says State Patrol Maj. Sandra Huxtable, director of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Bureau of Transportation Safety. "Last year, there were no fatal traffic crashes in Wisconsin on Super Bowl Sunday, and law enforcement officers will crackdown on impaired drivers again this Sunday to prevent deaths and injuries."
For a safe and fun Super Bowl celebration, WisDOT and the State Patrol offer the following life-saving advice:
"Our advice is ‘designate before you celebrate.' We don't want your enjoyment of the Super Bowl to be ruined by a drunken driving arrest or even worse a crash that causes serious injuries or death," Major Huxtable says. "If everyone will take responsibility for driving sober on Super Bowl Sunday and throughout the year, we can make progress toward the goal of reducing the number of preventable traffic deaths to Zero in Wisconsin."
