Washington officials would like to remind you not to drive drunk on Super Bowl Sunday.
Or, as they put it, "The Washington State Patrol points out that the Seahawks had a plan for getting to the Super Bowl. You need a plan for getting home."
WSP teamed up with Washington Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler in a joint news release reminding 12s that Washington has stiff penalties for driving under the influence.
The average bill for a DUI ranges from $6,500 to $10,000, according to Nerd Wallet, figures that include fines of up to $5,000, plus insurance rate increases and attorney's fees.
“We find that people sometimes get involved in the game and don’t realize how much they’ve had to drink,” said WSP Deputy Chief Curt Hattell. “It’s best to arrange for a sober ride home well before game time, whether that’s a designated driver, taxi or public transit. And go Hawks!”
Spokane Transit Authority isn't planning any extra service for Sunday, but riders can figure out how to safely get to and from Super Bowl parties using the STA trip planner.
