• Superbowl Warnings for Drunk Drivers

    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Authorities in Los Angeles County today will join their counterparts around the Southland today in looking for drunken drivers in the days leading up to the Super Bowl.

    “We want everyone to make the right decision on Super Bowl Sunday,” said Chris Murphy, director of the California Office of Traffic Safety. “It’s everyone’s call to make this year’s Super Bowl Sunday safe.”

    Law enforcement organizations participating in the Avoid the 100 Los Angeles County DUI task force will be on patrol through the weekend and staffing sobriety checkpoints to combat drunken driving.

    The following checkpoints are planned:

    – at 7:30 p.m., the California Highway Patrol will begin a six-hour checkpoint on Whittier Boulevard west of Hoefner Avenue;

    – at 8 p.m., the Los Angeles Police Department will begin a six-hour checkpoint on Roscoe Boulevard at Coldwater Canyon Road; and

    – on Saturday at 9 p.m., the LAPD will begin a six-hour checkpoint on Hyperion Avenue at Scotland Street.

    Also “saturation patrols” involving extra officers will be conducted at various times and locations around the county through the weekend.

    Authorities offered the following tips for party hosts:

    – serve plenty of food, and have non-alcoholic drinks available;

    – serve only one drink at a time, and serve measured drinks;

    – only serve alcohol to guests over 21 years of age;

    – determine ahead of time when you will stop serving alcohol, such as one hour before the end of the party, or at the end of the third quarter of the game;

    – begin serving desserts when you stop serving alcohol; and

    – add the phone numbers of local cab companies into your phone so they are just one touch away.
