NPD’s Super Bowl Enforcement Campaign
Ahead of Super Bowl Sunday, the Naperville Police Department is reminding residents to drive responsibly.

Be sure to wear a seatbelt, which is the best defense in the event of a crash. The Super Bowl enforcement campaign is part of the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click it or Ticket” programs.
