Avoid Car Accidents While Preparing for the Super Bowl
This weekend we will be one week closer to this year’s Super Bowl in Miami, Florida. Let’s make sure that every fan and their loved ones can watch the big game without injury from a car accident because someone was drinking.
Super Bowl Sunday is one of America’s biggest and most entertaining national sporting events as friends and families gather to socialize and watch the big game and the spectacle that surrounds it.Yet, historically it has also been one of the nation’s most dangerous days on the roadways due to drunk driving.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that young males, ages 21 to 34, are most likely to be involved in car accidents, to driving while impaired, and to be among those likely to wear their safety belts. Research also shows that the same group is the core audience for major sporting events like the Super Bowl.
If you are going to drink while watching the games this weekend, do the right thing by designating a driver. Apparently, most Americans do. According to the 2005 Designated Driver pool completed bu Data Development Corporation, 70% of the adult population have been a designated driver or have been driving home by one.
Cheer hard and loudly for your favorite team as we approach the Super Bowl in Miami, Florida. (Go Chicago Bears!!) However, do not behind the wheel if your celebration included alcohol. Too many people in Florida are injured from car accidents because of the drunk or impaired drivers. Do not become one of them or cause others to be injured in a car accident.
