Peel Regional Police will be conducting Super Bowl weekend RIDE spot checks this weekend, February 2 and 3. "Troopers will be watching for impaired drivers and distracted drivers as well as those not wearing their seat belts". During the 52nd Super Bowl weekend in 2018, ISP Troopers made over 60 DUI arrests and issued over 2,300 citations statewide, including over 760 speed, 320 seatbelt, and 160 alcohol related citations. The goal of the SPIDRE team is to focus on reducing alcohol related crashes in Maryland by targeting areas across the state with high crash rates involving impaired drivers.

Three fatalities and 276 injuries resulted from traffic crashes during the Super Bowl.

Massachusetts State Police Colonel Kerry Gilpin asks that citizens celebrate responsibly, designate a sober driver or make other arrangements for safe travel, and to call 911 to report any suspicious persons or objects.

"Impaired driving is not only irresponsible, but it can also destroy lives", CHP Commissioner Warren Stanley said.

The Super Bowl enforcement campaign is part of the Illinois "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" and "Click It or Ticket" programs supported through federal funds administered by IDOT.

ISPwould like to remind the public to avoid the Fatal-4; drive sober, don't speed, limit distractions, and buckle up. Drivers should also do not forget to "move over" for stopped emergency and hazard vehicles stopped on the side of the road when they travel NY roadways.
