Glenn cops plan Super Bowl DUI crackdown – Enterprise

ORLAND — Glenn County law enforcement agencies are planning a DUI crackdown on Super Bowl Sunday, with extra officers hitting city streets, county roads and Interstate 5.

Roving patrols will be looking for impaired drivers before, during and after the game, and anyone found to be over the limit will be arrested, according to Sgt. J.C. Tolle with the Orland Police Department.

Officials offer the following tips to those attending Super Bowl parties or going to sports bars:

* Designate your sober driver before the party begins and leave your car keys at home if you plan to drink.

* Find unique ways to recognize the designated drivers when you are out at a bar or restaurant.

* Offer to be the designated driver the next time you go out.

* Cover the cost for parking or even pay for a tank of gas.

* Whatever non-alcoholic beverage the designated driver is drinking, make sure their glass is always full.

If you are hosting a Super Bowl party:

* Make sure all of your guests designate their sober drivers before kick-off or help arrange ride-sharing with other sober drivers.

* Find unique ways to recognize the designated drivers at your party.

* Give them a great spot to watch the game.

* Whatever non-alcoholic beverage they are drinking, make sure their glass is always full.

* Serve plenty of food.

* Offer a variety of non-alcoholic choices like non-alcohol beers, soft drinks, juice, and water.

* Serve one drink at a time and serve

measured drinks.

* Determine ahead of time when you’ll stop serving alcohol, such as one hour before the end of the party or at the end of the third quarter.
