Super Bowl Sunday is just days away, and local law enforcement agencies are reminding football enthusiasts that "Fans Don't Let Fans Drive Drunk."

Cheyenne Police Department spokeswoman Alex Farkas says officers, deputies, and troopers will be teaming up Friday through Sunday to sideline drunk drivers.

"Throughout the weekend, Cheyenne police will increase patrols, mobilize the DUI Command Vehicle, and step-up enforcement of occupant protection laws to include seatbelt usage, speed enforcement, and child restraint violations," Farkas said in a news release.

Chief Mark Francisco says they're hoping citizens will partner with them to help keep everyone safe.

“Whether you are attending a party or patronizing a local business, make sure you have a game plan before enjoying Super Bowl activities,” he said.

Have a Game Plan

  • Remember that it is never okay to drink and drive. Designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation or a ride service to get home safely.
  • If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact the dispatch center at (307) 637-6525 and file a REDDI (Report Every Drunk Driver Immediately) report or dial 911.
  • If you see a friend or family member about to drink and drive, take the keys away and make arrangements to get them home safely.

Understand the Risks

  • In Wyoming, it is illegal to drive with a BAC of .08 or higher. If you are caught drinking and driving, you could face jail time, lose your driver’s license and your vehicle, and pay legal fees, fines, higher insurance rates, and lost wages.
