Don’t let your Super Bowl celebration end in tragedy

The Super Bowl is one of those annual events that brings the entire country together. Regardless of which team you support—or whether you’re even a football fan at all—it’s a day on which the majority of Americans gather with friends to watch the big game.

Whether you’re viewing the event at a bar, at a tailgating party or in person, you’re probably also drinking while you do it. Alcohol consumption skyrockets on Super Bowl Sunday—making it one of the drunkest days of the year.

In today’s post, we provide a few tips to keeping your Super Bowl festivities safe:

Drunk driving

If you’ve had more than a couple drinks, your blood alcohol concentration is likely above the legal limit of 0.08. Alcohol remains in your system—continuing to impair your judgment—even after you’ve drunk water, eaten food or waited a few hours.

In addition, the police are out in full force on Super Bowl Sunday to catch drunk drivers. A DUI charge not only gives you a criminal record, it can lead to exorbitant court costs—averaging around $10,000.

Getting home safely

If you’ve been drinking on game day, it’s important to plan for a safe ride home:

  • Avoid drinking, or find a sober friend to give you a ride home.
  • Plan to use public transportation or a rideshare service.
  • If you’re attending a friend’s viewing party, arrange to stay overnight at the host’s house.

Protecting yourself against other drunk drivers

If you spot someone on the road who is driving erratically or dangerously, call the police immediately to report the vehicle. In addition to the vehicle’s location, try to take note of the license plate number as well as the vehicle’s color, make and model.

If you’re the innocent victim of a drunk driving accident, contact the police and seek medical attention for your injuries right away. Then, consult with an experienced car accident attorney. You deserve to be compensated for your pain and suffering.
