Super Bowl Parties May Mean More Drunk Drivers – Protect Yourself

By Grant Law Office on February 3, 2012

Super Bowl parties will be taking place all over Georgia this weekend, as people gather together to enjoy food, drinks, and the big game. While you can make smart choices to prevent yourself from driving while impaired by alcohol, you can’t make all other drivers make the same smart choices.

To raise awareness of drunk driving and the serious auto accidents it can cause, the NFL (National Football League) offers the following facts:

  • Over 10,000 people lost their lives in drunk-driving accidents in 2010. These accidents involved both car drivers and motorcyclists.
  • A designated driver should be over the age of 21, have a valid driver’s license, and promise not to drink alcohol before or during the game. Showing your appreciation for a designated driver by picking up the tab or offering to pay for gas is one way to encourage people to volunteer as designated drivers in the future.
  • Making sure everyone has a sober ride home before breaking out the alcohol can help protect not only your friends, but others on the road as well.
  • So far, a record 175,000 NFL fans have pledged to be designated drivers as part of the NFL’s “Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk” program. It’s not too late to join them!
