Officials warn against DUI ahead of Super Bowl Sunday

As Super Bowl Sunday fast approaches, area law enforcement agencies are warning football fans not to get behind the wheel after drinking.
Officials throughout the county that comprise an anti-DUI task force known as “Avoid the 100” will be on the lookout for intoxicated drivers this weekend, Glendora Police Department Senior Community Service Officer and task force coordinator Wendy Brewer said in a written statement.
“Every regularly scheduled patrol officer working will be watching for the tell-tale signs of impaired driving before, during and after the game,” she said.
“For football fans, Super Bowl Sunday is one of the best days of the year,” Glendora Police Chief Tim Staab said. “Have a great time, but please don’t allow the celebration to result in a drunk driving arrest. Act responsibly, designate a sober driver before the Super Bowl party begins and leave your car keys at home.”
In Arcadia, police announced extra patrols to hunt for intoxicated drivers Friday and Sunday.
Monrovia police will also be out in force Sunday carrying out “DUI saturation patrols,” Monrovia police said in a written statement.
“This is a zero tolerance crackdown, so drive sober or get pulled over,” Monrovia police Sgt. Daniel Verna said.
Funding for the task force is bring provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
