Nebraska State Patrol reminds football fans to drive safely

LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) — The Nebraska State Patrol is reminding all football fans to have a game plan for safe travel on Super Bowl Sunday.

Soldiers across Nebraska are working with law enforcement agencies across the United States to monitor impaired driving. The effort takes place during the evening hours of Sunday, February 12, in conjunction with the Super Bowl.

“The Super Bowl is one of those events that draws passionate and casual fans to events and parties around the country,” said Colonel John Bolduc, superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “It doesn’t matter which team you root for, one thing we can all agree on is that everyone should go home safely after the game. Be the MVP of your Super Bowl party and make a plan to go sober if your party involves booze.

In Nebraska, about 1/3 of fatal accidents involve alcohol. From 2013 to 2020, there were an average of 74 fatalities per year in alcohol-related crashes on Nebraska roadways.

This effort is made possible thanks in part to a grant from the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office. This is part of the national campaign organized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
