Kick Off Super Bowl LVIII with a Go Safely Game Plan


Indian Wells, Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage, Calif. – As the excitement builds for Super Bowl LVIII, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office reminds football fans to intercept impaired driving if they’re heading out to a Super Bowl party and plan on drinking. Make sure you stick to the “Go Safely” game plan and choose a sober way to go.

During Super Bowl LVIII weekend (Feb. 10 & 11), the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office will have additional officers on patrol looking for drivers suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

“Let's make sure Super Bowl Sunday is remembered for great plays on the field, not for unnecessary risks on the road,” Lieutenant Dan Porras said. “Before you grab a drink, plan ahead for a sober designated driver. Choosing a safer way to go is a win-win for everyone.”

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office reminds the public that alcohol is not the only substance that impairs. Marijuana, prescription medications, and over-the-counter drugs may also impair your ability to drive safely. Do your research and understand how certain drugs may affect you.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
