Officials with the Department of Public Safety are reminding football fans to plan ahead for a sober ride if they will be drinking during Super Bowl festivities.
    
Authorities are stepping up drunken driving enforcement on Sunday.
    
Minnesota hasn't seen an alcohol-related fatality on Super Bowl Sunday for the last five years.
    
Officials with the DPS Office of Traffic Safety are hoping to keep that streak going for a sixth straight year.
    
Authorities say it's important to use a designated driver or use a taxi or public transportation if intoxicated.
    
And, they say, motorists and passengers should always buckle up.
