Keep Your Super Bowl Party Safe on Sunday

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the National Football League (NFL) have partnered this year to remind fans to enjoy a safe Super Bowl celebration. Your plans might include having some friends over to your home to watch the game along with food and drinks. If your party includes alcohol, the tips below will go a long way in preventing a drunken driving incident:

  • Serve plenty of food and offer non-alcoholic drinks such as water, juice and soda
  • Make sure guests that are drinking have designated drivers
  • Stop serving alcohol well before the game ends and begin serving coffee
  • Make sure the designated drivers’ cars are not blocked in by other vehicles
  • Have the telephone numbers of local cab companies handy
  • Remind your guests to buckle their seat belts as they leave the party

The NHTSA says that over 10,000 people die every year in drunken driving accidents. In addition to criminal sanctions, convicted drunken drivers have to deal with higher insurance rates and expensive car repairs. Following the steps above will help you throw a fun Super Bowl party that is memorable for all the right reasons.
