Stay Safe Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl Sunday is almost here. While parties are a fun way to get together to enjoy the big game, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office reminds the public there is a zero-tolerance policy toward drinking and driving.

Deputies will be out watching for impaired drivers and maintaining a visible presence throughout the night.

CCSO offers these tips for a safe celebration:

* Use a designated driver, or call a cab if you plan to attend a party and drink alcohol.

* If you are hosting a party, make sure to provide plenty of non-alcoholic drink options.

* Remember that even if you don’t feel “drunk” the next morning, your driving may still be impaired, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

* Report any suspected drunken or impaired drivers by calling 911.
