Spread the Word this Super Bowl Weekend:

Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk


Elmhurst, IL – Super Bowl weekend is here, and the Elmhurst Police Department is reminding football fans and partygoers that designated drivers are the best defense against the dangers of impaired driving. If your Super Bowl celebration involves alcohol or cannabis, plan for a ride home with a sober driver. If you’re hosting the party, take care of the designated drivers. Fans don’t let fans drive drunk.


“When you’re making your plans for a good time on Super Bowl night, make sure they include a sober ride home,” said Commander Steve Mandat. “Even one drink can impair judgement; a designated driver can ensure you and your friends get home safely.”


Whether you’re attending a party, hosting a gathering or going out to a bar, keep safety at the forefront of your celebration. When it’s time to leave, make sure your designated driver is sober.


The Elmhurst Police Department is joining other agencies throughout Illinois and will have extra officers on the roadways throughout the weekend to stop and arrest impaired drivers. The Illinois “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign is administered and funded by the Illinois Department of Transportation with federal highway safety funds managed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
