A radio call that officers, deputies, and troopers hope they don’t have to make on Super Bowl Sunday is “10-55,” which is the police radio ten-code for DUI in Utah. 

Twenty-five different law enforcement agencies are going to be working more than 75 DUI overtime shifts to deter, detect and stop impaired drivers. 

Whatever your plans are for watching the Super Bowl, if they include drinking, make sure they don’t include driving, the Utah Department of Public Safety advised in a press release. 

The release continued:

Every year, Utah law enforcement increases both DUI prevention education and DUI enforcement for the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, individuals still make the bad call to get behind the wheel after drinking. Over the past five years, there has been an average of 40 DUI arrests on Super Bowl Sunday in Utah.
