KING CITY — King City Police Department is reminding football fans that there’s no “DUI” in team.
For those heading out to a Super Bowl party and planning on drinking, police are advising that they stick to the “Go Safely” game plan and choose a sober way to go.
During Super Bowl LVI weekend (Feb. 11-12), KCPD will have additional officers on patrol looking for drivers suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
“We want the football fans in our community to enjoy Super Bowl festivities, but we also want responsible drivers on our roads,” Sgt. Anthony Shaw said. “Before you grab a drink, make sure your game plan includes scheduling a ride-share or designating a sober driver. Choosing a safer way to go is something we can all root for.”
King City Police Department reminds the public that alcohol is not the only substance that impairs. Marijuana, prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs may also impair the user’s ability to drive safely.
“Do your research and understand how certain drugs may affect you,” Shaw said.
Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
