Police plan drunken driving patrols for Super Bowl


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- The director of the Illinois State Police is asking those celebrating the Super Bowl this weekend not to drink and drive, to choose a designated driver or call a taxi to make sure they arrive home safely.

Illinois State Police director Jonathon Monken also says that on Super Bowl Sunday the agency "will remain diligent in enforcing" driving under the influence, speeding, safety belt use, improper lane usage and following too closely.

The state police along with the Illinois Department of Transportation say the campaign is called Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving. The effort also includes an estimated $350,000 in grants from the transportation department to state police and local law enforcement to increase patrols on Super Bowl weekend.
