DUI Checkpoints and the Super Bowl

Whether you’re cheering for the Broncos or Panthers this weekend, or hoping for a certain score, you should think twice before getting behind the wheel after throwing back a few adult beverages.  Police will be cracking down on drunk drivers all weekend long with DUI checkpoints. According to Mothers against Drunk Driving (MADD) more than two-thirds of Super Bowl Sunday traffic fatalities involve drunk drivers.  In fact, with the exception of New Year’s, more DUI injuries and fatalities occur on Super Bowl Sunday than on any other day of the year.    If you’re planning on drinking, get a ride from a friend, take Uber, or public transportation.

Remember if you get pulled over for a DUI, stay calm and contact Giribaldi & Manaras, P.C. at (610)891-8303.
