DUI saturation patrols will saturate OC Super Bowl weekend

Law enforcement will step up patrols this weekend as part of the “Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk” campaign urging football fans to call the right play on Super Bowl weekend and pass the keys to a sober driver before the drinking begins.

The Sheriff’s Department will deploy additional officers on special DUI saturation patrols specifically to stop and arrest drivers showing signs of alcohol or drug impairment during and after the game. As part of the Super Bowl Sunday enforcement efforts, police, sheriff and the CHP will be on heightened alert ready to stop and arrest any impaired driver.

Drivers are encouraged to download the Designated Driver VIP, or “DDVIP,” free mobile app for Android or iPhone. The DDVIP app helps find nearby bars and restaurants that feature free incentives like non-alcoholic drinks and appetizers for the designated sober driver.  The app also has social media tie-ins and a tab to call Uber, Lyft or Curb.

Remember to report drunk drivers by calling 911.
