Either the New England Patriots or the Seattle Seahawks will walk off the field as losers on Super Bowl Sunday.Police Lt. Mark Mara hopes the same cannot be said of local drivers this Sunday.“McMinnville Police Department, like the teams, are suiting up and having a playbook which holds ways of detecting impaired driving,” said Mara. “Unlike the Super Bowl results, McMinnville Police Department is hoping for no losers. Losers would be those arrested for driving under the influence.”Residents are encouraged to plan ahead for their parties, if alcohol will be served.“Line up designated drivers or have visitors stay until they are sober,” said Mara.
