PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The Rhode Island State Police say they will be vigilant in their patrols for impaired drivers during Super Bowl weekend.

The superintendent of the State Police, Col. Steven G. O’Donnell, is urging football fans not to drink and drive. He says troopers also will be on the lookout for drivers and passengers who are not wearing seat belts.

O’Donnell says State Police want Rhode Islanders to enjoy Super Bowl parties and cheer on the New England Patriots to victory Sunday night, but to do so responsibly. He says the goal is a “fatality-free weekend.”

O’Donnell also is asking motorists to report dangerous drivers or hazardous roadway conditions to State Police.
