Pittsburgh Police to Conduct Impaired Driving Patrols/Checkpoints on Super Bowl Weekend

February 5, 2021 (PITTSBURGH, PA) – This weekend, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police will participate in PennDOT’s Western Alliance/Team DUI Program to set up sobriety checkpoints and conduct roving DUI patrols across Western Pennsylvania on Super Bowl Sunday. 

Pittsburgh Police will be running checkpoints and roving patrols throughout Pittsburgh between the hours of 5 p.m. and 3 a.m. on February 7. These measures are in conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and PennDOT’s Impaired Driving Enforcement Campaign for Super Bowl weekend. These are effective tools to help remove impaired drivers from our highways. 

The City of Pittsburgh’s DUI Task Force is committed to reducing the number of DUI- related incidents to ensure safer roads for Pittsburgh residents and visitors all year round.

PennDOT’s Western Alliance / Team DUI Program consists of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, the Pennsylvania State Police, and numerous local police departments that conduct sobriety checkpoints and roving DUI patrols across Western Pennsylvania.
