The Super Bowl is America’s most watched national sporting event. On Feb. 7, there were lots of Super Bowl 50 activities that may have included alcohol, and that’s why the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the California Office of Traffic Safety and law enforcement officials cracked down on drinking and driving.

The San Bernardino County Probation Department specifically focused on probationers who, as a condition of their probation, cannot consume alcohol and were cautioned to make plans for non-alcohol festivities.

On Super Bowl Sunday, officers assigned to the Probation Department’s DUI Unit conducted home visits with the goal of stopping probationers who showed signs of impairment from driving.
