Commissioner Leonard Boyle of the Department of Public Safety said that designating a sober driver before a Super Bowl party begins and making sure friends don’t drive intoxicated are just two ways of avoiding a tragic accident or an arrest for DWI.

Violators often face jail time, the loss of their driver’s license, higher insurance rates, and dozens of other unanticipated expenses from attorney fees, other fines and court costs, car towing and repairs, lost time at work, etc.
Colonel Edward Lynch of the Connecticut State Police Department said that State Troopers will be attentive to the possibility of drunk drivers during the Super Bowl weekend and will be aggressively enforcing all motor vehicle laws.
In the State of Connecticut, "football pools" are legal as long as the money take in for the pool is given back to the winners participating in the pool. All monies received must go back to the winners of the pool. No "percentage" or "cut" can be taken by the person organizing the pool for his/her time and/or expense of running the pool.
