The Oxnard Police Department Traffic Unit will have several officers patrolling the streets of Oxnard searching for DUI drivers this Super Bowl Sunday night from 4:00 PM to 11:00 PM.  Avoid the 14 Ventura County, will also have officers and deputies patrolling the cities of Santa Paula, Camarillo, Ojai, and Fillmore before and after the game.

Super Bowl Sunday is one of America’s biggest and most entertaining national sporting events as friends and families gather to socialize and watch the big game. Yet, it is also one of the Nation’s most dangerous days on the roadways due to impaired driving.

“We want to pass our safety message to everyone who will be drinking this weekend, real Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk,” said Oxnard Police Chief John Crombach. “Please make the right decision and hand off your keys to a designated driver before the Super Bowl party begins. Getting caught driving while impaired will result in costly penalties including the loss of your driving privileges.”

Impaired-driving crashes—and fatalities—can be prevented.  Designating a sober driver should be on the top of everyone’s Super Bowl party list. 

Remember, real Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk!
