TIPS ON HOW TO AVOID A DUI ON SUPERBOWL SUNDAY 2016
If you a football fan you are probably looking forward to the upcoming Super Bowl Sunday on Sunday, February 7, 2016 in Santa Clara, California. For those of you fortunate enough to attend the game, congratulations, it should be a great game. For those of you attending or hosting a Super Bowl Party, these helpful tips may help you or your guests avoid getting a DUI on Super Bowl Sunday 2016:
If you’re hosting a Super Bowl party, make sure you monitor your guests and be vigilant as to who may try to drive home drunk. For those individuals you may want to have an Uber or Lyft driver lined up just in case. You could also ask some of your non-drinking guests to act as “designated drivers” for those who are too drunk to want to wait around for an Uber or Lyft driver to come get them.
If you have agreed to be the “designated driver” and you are headed to a Super Bowl party or are some of the fortunate to be coming from the actual game, try not to let your friends convince you to drink, thereby defeating the purpose of having a “designated driver” in the first place. You can still enjoy the Super Bowl while drinking non-alcoholic beverages. I hear all too often from good people who were the “designated drivers” and then ended up getting charged with DUI anyway because their friends were able to convince them to drink despite making the choice to be the “designated driver”. No good deed goes unpunished.
Additionally, and subsequent to the date of the original publication of this blog post, AAA announced that it would be offering free tow service home as part of its "Tipsy Tow" Program, which will allow people at either the Super Bowl or a Super Bowl Party to get a free tow home from 6:00 p.m. on Super Bowl Sunday to 6:00 a.m. Monday morning. The best part of the Tipsy Tow Program is that it is open to everyone, not just AAA Members; but will only be offered in the San Francisco Bay area. Regardless, way to go AAA!
Remember, Super Bowl Sunday often consists of lots of eating, drinking and having a good time; but that good time can come to a quick end when the law comes knocking on your door or pulls you over on the roadway. So regardless of whether you are attending the actual Super Bowl or attending a Super Bowl Party, please be safe and be sure to drink responsibly. Enjoy the game.
