DuBois, PA – Businesses and police are sending out reminders that, even though it’s fine if alcohol is a part of your Super Bowl Sunday, you need to celebrate safely. Designate a sober driver.
Even though the Steelers aren’t in the Superbowl, a lot of us are still going to be celebrating.
It’s okay to have some fun over the weekend and watch the game with your buddies… just make sure that you have a safe way to get home.
Domino’s Pizza in DuBois, Clearfield, Clarion, Bellefonte, Duncansville, Huntingdon, Jersey Shore, and lock Haven areas will be attaching fliers to the top of every pizza box over the weekend. The fliers remind you that “fans don’t let fans drive drunk.”
Greg Lightner (supervisor of the regional Domino’s), Tim Nebgen (PennDOT), Chief Vince McGinnis of the Clearfield Borough Police, and Chief Doug Clark of the Lawrence Township Police met to talk about the importance of not driving while impaired.
Don't drink and drive anytime, but a good reminder especially around the Super Bowl! Thanks to Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), Lawrence Township Police Department, Clearfield Boro Police Department, and Domino's Pizza for teaming up to help prevent impaired driving!
