[ARCHIVED] Super Bowl Weekend Traffic Safety Effort

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office announces it will conduct special patrols this Super Bowl weekend to keep impaired drivers off the roads and encourage motorists to wear their seat belts. The messages are familiar and simple: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket.

Sheriff John Idleburg said, “Traditionally, we see an increase in those getting behind the wheel intoxicated following the Super Bowl.  It is very important we all work together to keep drunk drivers off our roads.  All it takes is a game plan. Before you go to the party, make a plan for a safe ride home.” 

If you see someone driving who appears to be impaired, call 911, if you’re able to do so safely.  

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office Super Bowl enforcement effort is made possible by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
