The Crystal Lake Police Department Urges You to Celebrate Safely this Super Bowl Weekend

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over


The Crystal Lake Police Department announced today that they are conducting special patrols this Super Bowl weekend, looking for and cracking down on alcohol and drug-impaired drivers.

 The Crystal Lake Police Department strongly recommends designating a sober driver and not letting friends drive impaired.  These are just two of several simple steps to help avoid a tragic crash or a DUI arrest. Other important tips include:


  • Call a taxi, use mass transit, or call a sober friend or family member to get you home safely;


  • Report impaired drivers to law enforcement;


  • Spend the night where the activity is being held and sleep it off;


  • Always buckle up – it is your best defense against an impaired driver.


Federal grant money, administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation, pays for the Crystal Lake Police Department’s Super Bowl enforcement effort. For more information about the Click It or Ticket and the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over statewide campaigns, please visit
