Cops Crack Down on Drunken Drivers on Super Bowl Sunday

The festivities started early on Super Bowl Sunday, as well as the drinking.

During the game and afterwards at bars all over Seattle bar managers and employees were keeping a close eye out for those who may have had too much to drink.

Joe Piano, who owns The Hawks Nest next to Century Link Field, was concerned about drunk driving so he hired extra security to keep an eye out and dial for a cab or Uber for Hawks fans.

Bar managers weren’t the only ones on the lookout for drunk drivers.  Washington State Patrol Trooper Mark Francis said, “We have to out there to get these people off the road before someone’s seriously injured or killed.”

WSP reports making 34 DUI arrests from Friday morning to Saturday night, even before the Super Bowl partying began.
