Glendale police will be conducting "roving DUI patrols" on Super Bowl Sunday as part of a regional task force to clamp down on inebriated drivers.

In the announcement issued Friday, police included a few reminders for those planning to take part in Super Bowl festivities – including the fact that hosts can be held liable if someone leaves drunk and ends up in a crash.

Police issued the following suggestions:

If you’re attending a Super Bowl party:

• Designate your sober driver before the party begins.
• If you don’t have a designated driver, ask a sober friend for a ride home; call a cab, friend, or family member to come and get you; or if possible stay where you are for the night and don’t drive until you are sober.
• Use your community’s sober ride or enter www.ruok2drive.com in your smartphone’s browser for the OTS Cab Finder.

If you’re hosting a Super Bowl party:

• Serve plenty of food and non-alcoholic beverages at the party.
• Remember, you can be held liable and prosecuted if someone you served ends up in a drunk-driving crash.
• Likewise, parents or other adults who provide alcohol to, or host a party where alcohol is available to, those under age 21 could face jail time.
