Expect “Super” DUI Enforcement Sunday

Eat, drink and be merry as you watch the Super Bowl on NBC but just don't drink and drive.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and police agencies will be out in force in Montgomery County to make sure that "fans don’t let fans drive drunk."

Last year there were 34 alcohol-related crashes in Pa. on Super Bowl Sunday through the following day at 6 a.m., said PennDOT.

PennDOT officials are hoping that this year Eagles fans drowning their sorrows or fans cheering for, or against, the cross-state Pittsburgh Steelers won't drink then get behind the wheel.

There were 525 alcohol-related highway fatalities in Pennsylvania in 2007, out of 1,491 total highway deaths in the state that year, according to PennDOT. They invest about $2.8 million annually into DUI enforcement around the state.

If you're partying Sunday remember that the rules don't change for the Super Bowl -- if you drink, don't drive.
