Police to keep vigilant watch on road this Super Bowl Sunday

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A warning for those of us watching the big game at home.

Police will be out looking for drunk drivers.

The Hanover County Sheriffs Office, for example, will have sobriety checkpoints set up tonight.

So will State Police.

Troopers arrested over 1,000 motorists for driving under the influence last year.

If convicted, a person could face up to a year in jail, a $2,500 fine and a license suspension.
