Drive Safe on Super Bowl Sunday
This Sunday, people will gather around to watch the Atlanta Falcons take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI. Many lucky fans in Houston will be at NRG Stadium to see the game live, while millions more will watch at Super Bowl parties across the country. It is the biggest one-day sporting event in the United States. While Super Bowl Sunday is a great chance to party with friends and family, watch some football, and enjoy some hilarious commercials, it can also be a dangerous time to be on the road.
On Sunday, many people will drink more than a few beers while watching the big game. With approximately 325 million gallons of beer consumed (enough to fill almost 500 Olympic-sized swimming pools), Super Bowl Sunday ranks as one of the top drinking days on the calendar. As a result, Super Bowl Sunday brings a significant increase in alcohol-related crashes and deaths.
While everyone wants to enjoy the big game, the drunk driving accident lawyers at The Pinkerton Law Firm want you and your loved ones to stay safe this weekend. Here are some helpful tips to make sure you get home safely:
- Have a designated driver – Before you leave for the party, make a plan for a safe ride.
- Get an Uber, Lyft or Cab – Compared to a drunk driving crash, $50 for a safe ride is a bargain.
- Pace yourself – Don’t drink a beer for every first down and don’t forget to eat.
- Buckle up – Just because you’re sober doesn’t mean everyone else is. Stay safe. Stay buckled.
- Crash on the couch, not the road – If you can’t get a sober ride, don’t push your luck.
- Keep an eye on your friends – Remember, fans don’t let fans drive drunk.
The drunk driving accident lawyers at The Pinkerton Law Firm have represented many victims of drunk drivers, including family members to people killed by drunk drivers. When people drive drunk, they place themselves, their passengers and other motorists in danger. Don’t drive drunk and stay safe this Sunday.
