NHTSA, States Kick Off Super Bowl Anti-Drunk Driving Campaign

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is offering a media kit to help local and state law enforcement offices nationwide publicize increased efforts to identify and arrest possible drunk drivers during the NFL playoffs and the Super Bowl. Known as the Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk campaign, the messages encouraging smart driving – and the increased police presence that accompanies them – began on January 2, 2012, and will run until February 6, 2012, the day after the Super Bowl.

The purpose of the campaign, according to the NHTSA, is to remind people enjoying the playoffs and the Super Bowl to make smart choices about combining alcohol with their celebrations. It’s fun to have a beer or two while watching the games, but the NHTSA recommends choosing a designated driver before you do – or choosing a way home that doesn’t involve driving, like taking a cab, public transportation, or walking. Alternately, football fans may choose to host a party or two in their homes.

Plans for increased police presence vary by state. In New Hampshire, state and local patrols may include more officers on more shifts, as well as the use of NH sobriety checkpoints. An arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) in New Hampshire can have serious consequences, such as a suspended license and other penalties. A conviction carries even stiffer penalties.
