PSP Plans Roving DUI Patrols for Super Bowl
Pennsylvania –This Sunday the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs will compete for the NFL championship in the Super Bowl and the Pennsylvania State Police are planning roving patrols with a focus on stopping intoxicated drivers. Last year from 6 PM on Super Bowl Sunday until 6 AM Monday morning the Pennsylvania State Police responded to 46 crashes involving at least one DUI driver and one of those crashes was fatal; metropolitan and municipal police responded to many more. Please enjoy the weekend, and enjoy the big game, but don’t fumble by drinking and driving, stay sober or find a designated driver to quarterback for you.
State House Reconvenes in 11 Days
Harrisburg – According to Speaker Mark Rozzi, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives is scheduled to reconvene on the 21st of February, 48 days after the first unsuccessful session. Rozzi says the plan is to finalize House rules and begin business by voting on a Constitutional Amendment and a bill to help victims of childhood sexual assault which would allow them to sue their attackers even if the statute of limitations on the crime has expired. The State Senate passed a bill including the amendment, but it was bundled with two other amendments that Democrats disagree with.
