Celebrating the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 13, means more than simply gathering with friends and family to watch the big game on TV.

Getting to a party and returning from it safely must also be taken into consideration, a Prescott Valley Police Department news release stated Feb. 9.

If you plan on drinking alcohol, you must avoid driving a vehicle while under the influence, the release added.

Prescott Valley Police encourages residents to be responsible for themselves and for one another. Rather than driving alone, carpool to and from parties with a designated driver or call for a taxi.

If necessary, take the keys from someone who has been drinking and wants to drive.

Thanks to a grant from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, Prescott Valley Police’s traffic units, along with the Prescott Police Department, will be focusing specifically on impaired drivers during Super Bowl weekend, Feb. 12 and 13, with extra enforcement occurring throughout the day.

The Tri-City DUI Task Force will continue to conduct high profile details throughout the year and would like to remind motorists that driving impaired is never worth the monetary loss or the physical and emotional devastation that can be caused by simply making a bad choice to drive impaired.

If you happen to see someone driving recklessly, call your local police department or dial 911.

You may call Prescott Valley Police at 928-772-9267 for non-emergencies and 911 for emergencies. Prescott Police can be reached at 928-445-3131 for non-emergencies or 911 for emergencies. To remain anonymous, call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232.
