Be Safe During Super Bowl



Super Bowl Sunday is one of the year’s most dangerous days on the nation’s roadways due to impaired driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 158 people were killed during the 2004 Super Bowl weekend due to impaired drivers with blood alcohol levels of .08% or higher.

To save your life or the life of a loved one or even a stranger, here are a few tips for tonight’s game:

If You Are Hosting a Super Bowl Party:

  1. Remember, you could be held liable and prosecuted if someone you served ends up in an impaired car accident.
  2. Make sure all your guests designate their sober drivers in advance, or help arrange ride-sharing with other sober drivers.
  3. Serve lots of food.
  4. Have lots of non-alcoholic beverages available at the party,
  5. Stop serving alcohol at the end of the third quarter of the game and begin serving coffee and dessert.

If You Are Attending a Super Bowl Party:

  1. Avoid drinking too much too fast. Pace yourself–eat enough food, take breaks and alternate with non-alcoholic drinks.
  2. Designate your sober driver before the party begins and give that person your keys.
  3. Never let a friend leave your sight if you think they are about to drive while impaired. Remember, Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.

Root for the Bears (like this Chicago boy) or the Colts as loudly as you can. However, do your part to avoid causing injury to yourself or another person. Also, be very cautious while driving today because there will be drunk drivers out there.

If you are involved in a Florida car accident because of the carelessness, selfishness and/or negligence of a drunk driver, it is important that you talk with a lawyer about your rights before talking with the insurance company. Signing paperwork with the insurance company may prevent you from getting all the compensation you may be entitled to.
