In an effort to flag those who choose to drive impaired, the San Luis Obispo Police Department will increase patrols Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 3), adding additional officers to look for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. "Troopers will be watching for impaired drivers and distracted drivers as well as those not wearing their seat belts".
ISP Troopers made over 60 DUI arrests and issued over 2,300 citations statewide during Super Bowl weekend previous year.
During the 2018 Super Bowl weekend, ISP also investigated three alcohol-related crashes and one fatal traffic crash.
"We encourage you to plan ahead and make it a priority to get to where you're going safely".
