Law enforcement blitz for Super Bowl weekend

Posted: Updated:

Fans don't let fans drive drunk, that's the message from the Ohio Highway Patrol this Super Bowl Sunday.

This weekend more than 99 local law enforcement agencies across the state will have extra eyes and ears on the roads thanks to federal grants.

During last year's Super Bowl from six a.m. Sunday morning to six a.m. Monday morning the state highway patrol arrested 63 people for operating a vehicle while impaired.

In that same time, there were 200 traffic crashes across the state, three of them fatal.

If you're throwing a party troopers want to remind you to only serve alcohol to guests 21 and over and offer your guests a place to stay or a ride home. Always designate a driver and buckle up.
