The Sheriff's Office provided extra patrols focused on impaired driving before, during and especially after the Super Bowl. Sheriff's Deputies were also looking for drivers who were speeding, following too closely, or were distracted while using mobile communication devices.

These extra patrols were funded by a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration grant obtained through the Department of Transportation. In relation to the program, the Washington County Sheriff's Office listed its goals as reducing the number of impaired drivers on the roads, reducing crashes and saving lives.
