The Maryland State Police has joined forces with the NFL and federal agencies to spread an important safety message to the public about designating a sober driver on Super Bowl Sunday - Fans Don't Let Fans Drive Drunk.
Organizations including the NFL, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the U.S. Department of Transportation know that Super Bowl is a time when fans gather to watch the big game at sports bars, restaurants and parties. However, there are common sense ways to have a good time and avoid tragedy.
Before choosing to drink, choose a sober designated driver. Avoid the unsportsmanlike conduct of driving drunk by handing off your keys so that you, your passengers and everyone on the road can safely arrive home. Drunk driving is always preventable, and driving drunk could result in seriously injuring or killing yourself or someone else. Motorists can expect Maryland State Police to have a visible presence and to stop anyone who makes the dangerous decision to drink and drive.
