Albany -- It's Super Bowl Weekend. That means fun and parties for many South Georgians. But Transportation Officials say Super Bowl Sunday can be super dangerous on the roads because of drunk drivers.

During Super Bowl weekend in 2006, 39-percent of the traffic fatalities nationwide involved impaired drivers. In 2005, it was 41 percent.

Many people drive home after attending a Super Bowl party, even though they had too much to drink. Police remind hosts that they can be held liable for their guests if they have a crash. Dougherty Co. Police Lt. Thomas Jackson said " so you need to know when to stop serving somebody. You need to have that designated driver."

 Dougherty County Police say they will have extra units on the road Sunday night, looking for drunk drivers.
