In recent years, Super Bowl Sunday has become notorious for being the number one day for drunk driving-related incidents in California. In 2009, 11 people were killed and 163 people were injured in drunk driving accidents on Super Bowl Sunday. These figures are three and two times the normal daily average for the state. For the 2010 Super Bowl, county-wide police forces throughout California decided to increase its DUI patrols and checkpoints to prevent these accidents. Large concentrations of police in patrol areas and checkpoints are known as “saturation patrols,” and they are made to deter any potential criminal activity in areas where crime might occur. Nevertheless, in Orange County alone, more than 40 arrests for DUI were made during Super Bowl Sunday for 2010.
In California, a DUI conviction can result in a jail sentence, thousands of dollars in fines, and a license suspension. Multiple convictions will significantly increase these punishments.
