MADISON (WKOW) -- Federal, state, and local officials are reminding motorists to celebrate the Super Bowl responsibly by planning ahead.
The U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the National Football League and TEAM (Techniques for Effective Alcohol Management), have joined forces with local law enforcement to spread the word about designating a sober driver on Super Bowl Sunday.
The Wisconsin State Patrol and its law enforcement partners are striving for zero deaths and injuries from traffic crashes this Sunday.
"Officers will be particularly focused on preventing drunken driving on Super Bowl Sunday because football fans will be at bars and parties before, during and after the game," Major Huxtable said. "That's why we are urging fans to not let their fellow fans drive drunk. The key is to plan ahead by designating a sober driver or finding alternative transportation."
