Super Bowl Fans Get Sober Reminder From Lake Elsinore Police Chief

Lake Elsinore police are beefing up patrols on Super Bowl Sunday in an effort to crack down on driving under the influence.

The Lake Elsinore Police Department will be deploying special roving DUI patrols on Sunday looking to stop and arrest drivers who are impaired by alcohol or drugs, according to a department news release today.

"Because the Super Bowl has become somewhat of a holiday celebration for many people, we want to remind everyone to enjoy the game in a responsible manner. Real football lovers don't allow other fans to drive drunk," said Chief of Police Dave Fontneau. "We are asking all party hosts and bar owners to take extra care of their family, friends, and patrons by assisting them to designate a sober driver. This way, everyone wins!"

The added DUI patrols, in addition to regularly scheduled patrol officers, will be “looking for the tell-tale signs of an intoxicated driver behind the wheel,” according to today’s news release.

“The Lake Elsinore Police Department is reminding football fans watching this year's Super Bowl game with friends and family to make the right decision before kickoff and plan for a designated sober driver before the big game,” the news release stated.

The Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station is just one of many lending support to the national "Fans Don't Let Fans Drive Drunk" message from the National Football League, the California Office of Traffic Safety, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the Techniques for Effective Alcohol Management (TEAM) Coalition, the news release stated.

@Brad Beckett, You are the biggest idiot in ou community to make such comments. I never liked your comments any way but how low can yu get? How would you feel if someone tells tells you to go get a new face? I think you should, perhaps you can buy a mask to cover this ugly face of yours. Stop attacking people in the future!!!

Brad Beckett, you just proved Jackie Lynne's point, "you are an idiot." You can read other people's comments without adding your own comment. Furthermore, I will have to agree with her "you are not a very attractive man" sorry Mr. Beckette your picture makes me laugh every time I see your comments. I know a really good plastic srgeon, I went to school with him perhaps I can give you his number. Make comments without attacking people, or else find a new hobby...The Patch was created to provide information to small communities, nobody wants to see ugly photos to go with their stupid comments. Have a nice day! Please don't use this forum to hate people!!!
