Only one team will walk away as Super Bowl 51 champions on Sunday—and off-the-field sober drivers will be winners, too.

In coordination with the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) and statewide law agencies, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will conduct a Heat Is On DUI enforcement over Super Bowl weekend to keep Colorado roads safe from impaired drivers. The enforcement period begins on Friday, Feb. 3, and runs until Monday, Feb. 6. It will include 100 law enforcement agencies from across the state.

“The Super Bowl is an exciting event that combines friends, family, food and—for many people—alcohol,” said Darrell Lingk, director of the Office of Transportation Safety at CDOT. “CDOT wants to remind football fans across the state to make safe travel plans—to and from your destination—before you start drinking. There’s never a good reason to drive impaired.”
