COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio officials are reminding football fans to designate a sober driver on Super Bowl Sunday.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says officers made 46 arrests for drunken driving during the 2014 Super Bowl. One death and 10 injuries were drunken-driving related.

In all, traffic crashes during the 24-hour reporting period around last year’s game resulted in two fatalities and more than 180 injuries.

Patrol superintendent Col. Paul Pride says the patrol is committed to removing impaired drivers from the roads.

The patrol says the public should report dangerous or impaired drivers and that those hosting Super Bowl parties should make sure guests have a safe way home.
