FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) - State officials are joining the Tennessee Titans in urging folks to not drink and drive Super Bowl weekend.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation, the Governor’s Highway Safety Office, the Franklin Police Department and the Tennessee Highway Patrol will join the Titans at an event at the Franklin Police headquarters on Friday.

Their unified message: Fans don’t let fans drive drunk this Super Bowl Sunday.

They will be joined by Stephen and Kimberly Schlapman who lost their brother, Allen Schlapman, to a drunk driver in 2012.

The Schlapman family donated the motorcycle Allen was riding when he was killed to the Students Against Destructive Decisions program and the Governor’s Highway Safety Office.

Organizers say the motorcycle will be on display at the event to remind people of the consequences of drinking and driving.
