As you're making plans to watch the big game (and hopefully celebrate the outcome if the Baltimore Ravens win), county police are reminding people to make arrangements to avoid drinking and driving on Super Bowl Sunday.
The Anne Arundel County Police Department released a public service announcement on Sunday afternoon urging people to celebrate responsibly.
“Enjoy the festivities, have fun, root for your team, but please have a designated driver if you plan on drinking alcoholic beverages,” Chief Larry Tolliver said in the announcement. “Officers will be on high alert for drunken drivers this weekend … we’ve had too many accidents that have ended tragically because of alcohol and that’s unacceptable.”
According to the announcement, police have implemented saturation patrols throughout the county and "will out in force."
There are some weather predictions that include a slight chance for some flurries in Anne Arundel County from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, so the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) also urges motorists to be cautious.
