A press release from the Crystal Lake Police Department:
The Crystal Lake Police Department Urges You to Celebrate Safely this Super Bowl Weekend Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over
The Crystal Lake Police Department announced today that they are conducting special patrols this Super Bowl weekend to keep impaired drivers off the roads and encourage motorists to wear their seat belts.
The messages are familiar and simple: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket.
The Crystal Lake Police Department strongly recommends designating a sober driver and not letting friends drive impaired.
These are just two of several simple steps to help avoid a tragic crash or a DUI arrest. Other important tips include:
- Call a taxi, use mass transit, or call a sober friend or family member to get you home safely;
- Report impaired drivers to law enforcement;
- Spend the night where the activity is being held and sleep it off;
- Always buckle up – it is your best defense against an impaired driver.
Federal grant money, administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation, pays for the Crystal Lake Police Department’s Super Bowl enforcement effort.
