The Joliet Police Department announced today it will conduct special patrols during Super Bowl weekend to keep impaired drivers off the roads and encourage more people to wear their seatbelts. The messages are familiar and simple: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket.
“We need your help to keep alcohol and drug-impaired drivers off our roads,” said Joliet Police Chief Brian Benton. “All it takes is a game plan. Before you go to the party, decide if you’re drinking or driving – never do both. We will also be checking for compliance with seatbelt laws – so remember to buckle up.”
The Joliet Police Department’s Super Bowl enforcement effort is made possible by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
