As the Colts and Bears face off for Superbowl XLI many fans are getting ready for big parties, and Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement officers say they are stepping up patrols to keep Kentucky's roadways safe.

Officer Greg Reams with KVE says he will be one of many officers patrolling the roads this Superbowl Sunday.

"We'll be looking for people that are leaving the Superbowl parties that may have had too much to drink," Reams said.

He says before you kick back to watch the big game, you should have a game plan of your own for how to get home.

"If at all possible try to have a designated driver lined up for the night and those that are hosting the parties just be sure to watch and not allow anybody to leave that has had too much to drink, Reams said.

And other drivers on the road ways say they agree.

"If they're going to be out partying they ought to keep it at home or have a designated driver, stay off the road and be safe, Rick Carr, a local resident said.

"It's always one of my concerns I'm thinking about when I'm driving especially at night and especially on weekends after a big game or something like that because some people like to party a little too much," Adam Gilley, a new driver, said.

Officers say if you are out Sunday night and notice someone driving erratically to contact your local law enforcement immediately.
