Green Bay or Pittsburgh on Sunday?
Ouch! San Diego County Avoid the 14 DUI Task Force have maximum Drunk Driving special cops out throughout San Diego county to arrest drivers who are DUI.
The San Diego DUI effort will augment regularly scheduled patrols looking for the tale-tell signs of drunk drivers, lawyers are told.
A San Diego county DUI and driver’s-license checkpoint may get some drivers in Encinitas the day before Sunday’s big game.
“We’re reminding everyone that real Super Bowl fans don’t let (other) fans drive drunk. If your Super Bowl plans include alcohol, make sure you have a designated sober driver. We are asking all party hosts and bar owners to take extra-good care of designated sober drivers this year,” San Diego Sheriff Gore announced today, DUI attorneys say.
DUI lawyers in San Diego suggest fans hosting a Super Bowl to do this:
— make sure all your guests designate their sober drivers before kick- off, or help arrange ride-sharing with other sober drivers;
— find unique ways to recognize the designated drivers at your party, such as giving them the best spot to watch the game;
— make sure their cars are easy to access when it is time to start driving people home;
— serve plenty of food;
— offer a variety of non-alcoholic choices like non-alcohol beers, soft drinks, juice and water;
— only serve alcohol to guests who are 21 or older;
— determine ahead of time when you’ll stop serving alcohol, such as one hour before the end of the party or at the end of the third quarter of the game — like NFL stadiums do — and then begin serving coffee and dessert;
— add the numbers of local cab companies into your phone so they are just one touch away;
— take appropriate steps to prevent anyone from driving while impaired; and
— be prepared for guests to spend the night if an alternative way home is not available.
