Police Planning Super Bowl Drunk Driving Crackdown

Posted:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - About 70 Michigan law enforcement agencies are planning a crackdown on drunken driving as residents celebrate the Super Bowl this weekend.

The Michigan State Police announced Thursday that law enforcement officers in 20 counties will be working extra from Friday to Sunday to target drunk drivers.

The Director of Michigan's Office of Highway Safety Planning says "Michigan law enforcement officers don't play games when it comes to drunk drivers" and is encouraging residents to use a designated driver.

State police say 166 people were arrested for drunken driving on Super Bowl Sunday last year.

For Michiganians planning to party this weekend, the office recommends choosing a sober driver before the Super Bowl begins and adding numbers for local cab companies in a cellphone.
