San Jacinto, Calif. – The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, San Jacinto Station is reminding football fans to stick to the “go safely” game plan and designate a sober driver if you plan on drinking at a Super Bowl LVI watch party.
“If you plan to have a drink or two, choose a sober way to get to and from wherever you are watching the game,” Deputy Ray Cortez said. “Have a ride-hailing service or a family member who hasn’t been drinking take you home.”
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department reminds the public that alcohol is not the only substance that impairs. Marijuana, prescription drugs, and over-the-counter medications can all affect your ability to drive safely. Do your research and understand the potential side effects of certain drugs.
“When it comes to getting to and from places safely, we’re all on the same team,” Deputy Ray Cortez. “The choice is simple: Don’t drive impaired.”
