Oregon Law Enforcement Agencies Will Be Out Super Bowl Sunday


Law enforcement agencies across Oregon will be on the road looking for drunk drivers this Super Bowl Sunday. Benton County, Deschutes County Sheriff's, and the Eugene Police Department are among the agencies participating in DUII saturation patrols.

Also, EPD spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin says if your party gets out of control, don't be afraid to call the police.

McLaughlin "That's something that's an affirmative thing you can do to help EPD come and regain control. Then also it's very important not to serve alcohol to minors and not to have open containers and walk around with a red Solo cup downtown, or anywhere else."

According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, 48% of traffic fatalities on Super Bowl Sunday involve an impaired driver.
