With Super Bowl LVIII taking place this Sunday, the Hawai‘i County Police Department (HPD) has teamed up with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to remind Big Island football fans that Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.
In a press release HPD’s Traffic Services Section Program Manager Torey Keltner.“We take care of each other and our ohana on the Big Island, so if you’re planning on having a Superbowl party, please make a game plan to help your guests get home safely,”HPD is advising motorists of the following:
- If you’re going to a Super Bowl party and you plan to drink alcohol, make sure you plan for a designated driver to get you home safely.
- If you’re hosting a party, prepare plenty of non-alcoholic drink options and food for your guests.
- If you’re a designated driver, be the night’s MVP and keep that commitment front and center.
Another important reminder: Never serve alcohol to minors. If an underage person drinks and drives, the person who provided the alcohol can be held liable for any damage, injury, or death caused by the underage driver.Hawai‘i Island police will be out in force traffic throughout Superbowl weekend.
