The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said it plans special DUI patrols across the county during and after the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Deputies will be on the lookout for impaired drivers between 3 p.m. Sunday and 5 a.m. Monday morning.

“Don’t drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs this Super Bowl Sunday or any other day,” said Sheriff Bill Gore. “It’s a bad decision that can negatively impact the rest of your life.” 

During Super Bowl Sunday 2020, 22 people were arrested by the sheriff’s department and other law enforcement agencies in San Diego County for impaired driving.

Gore stressed that impaired driving doesn’t just mean alcohol. It can also include marijuana and prescription drugs.
