As Super Bowl Sunday approaches in our neighboring Minnesota on February 4, the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) wants to remind motorists to always drive sober, designate a sober driver, or don’t get behind the wheel. Nationally, historic data has shown that alcohol related motor vehicle crashes and driving under the influence increase in the hours following the Super Bowl; so it is critical to plan ahead and make arrangements for a sober ride home. Whether fans are traveling to or from the game, a private party or an establishment, there is no excuse to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
