San Diego County sheriff's deputies increase DUI patrol presence for Super Bowl Sunday

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego County Sheriff's deputies increased their DUI patrol presence Sunday between 3 p.m. and 5 a.m. Monday due to Super Bowl LIII.

The Sheriff's department reminded drivers that DUI charges aren't just reserved for alcohol and include driving while impaired by marijuana or prescription drugs. County residents were advised to plan their way home prior to kickoff by designating a sober driver, using a ride-booking service or taking public transit.

"There is simply no excuse for impaired driving," said San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore. "One bad decision can end in tragedy."

Residents who spot an impaired driver were advised to promptly call 911. The Sheriff's enhanced DUI patrols were paid for via a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration grant, administered by the California Office of Traffic Safety.
