During the San Diego Super Bowl weekend, authorities reminded drivers to drive safely and remain sober behind the wheels.
San Diego Police Department said that a big component of these checkpoints is the deterrent effects it has on those who might drive drunk or drugged. The police have the intention to bring awareness and encourage people to remain sober when driving.
