State Patrol warns against drunk driving for Super Bowl

Posted:

MADISON (AP) -- The Wisconsin State Patrol is urging football fans watching the Super Bowl on Sunday not to drive drunk.

Last year, three people died in traffic fatalities in Wisconsin on Super Bowl Sunday.  State Patrol Bureau of Transportation Safety director David Pabst says law enforcement agencies will be focused on preventing drunken driving on Sunday.

Pabst is urging fans to not let their friends drive drunk.

The State Patrol suggests people download the Wisconsin app that has a "Find a Ride" feature, blood alcohol estimator, and a designated driver selector.

The Patrol also notes that bars and restaurants participating in the Safe Ride Program can provide a ride home for patrons.
