The Lombard Police Department has announced that it will conduct special patrols this Super Bowl weekend, cracking down on alcohol and drug-impaired drivers and seat belt law violators.
“Impaired driving crashes are completely preventable,” said Lombard Police Traffic Unit Officer Paula Rojas. “All it takes is a game plan. We want fans to remember that it’s a choice, and the choice is simple. Drink or drive—but never do both. If you do, you will be arrested.”
