CCPD partner with NFL, NHTSA for Super Bowl safety

By Staff | Feb 2, 2012

The Cape Coral Police Department is partnering with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the National Football League for their “Super Bowl Impaired Driving Prevention Campaign.”

“The Cape Coral Police Department wants everyone to enjoy the Super Bowl on Sunday,” Lt. Tony Sizemore, spokesman for the CCPD, wrote in a prepared statement. “Whether you are watching the game at a sports bar or restaurant, or you are one of many watching at a house party, we want you to get home safe. Please designate a sober driver to take you home or call a taxi.”

The following are some helpful Super Bowl party tips from the NHTSA:

– Make sure all of your guests designate their sober drivers before kickoff or help arrange ride-sharing with sober drivers.

– Only serve alcohol to guests 21 years of age and older.

– Be prepared for guests to spend the night if an alternative way home is not available.
