Stay Safe This Super Bowl Sunday With Our Tips

istock_000007435695xsmallAh, the Super Bowl: it’s the one thing Americans can agree on in these tumultuous times. No matter your political beliefs, chances are good you’ll be tuned into the big game this weekend. Many of us will end up at bars or parties to celebrate the end of football season. Often times, that celebratory air comes with alcoholic beverages. It’s all good fun until it’s time to get behind the wheel.

This Super Bowl Sunday, don’t chance drinking and driving. Instead, follow our recommendations for a safe weekend of football:

1. If you’re hosting a party, stop serving alcohol at the end of the third quarter. By that point, you can bust out the desserts and coffee to encourage your guests to wrap up their evening – and sober up in time to drive home safely.

2. Find a designated driver before you start imbibing. This one seems like common sense, but many parties end with friends realizing they forgot to ask a buddy to abstain. Don’t make this mistake – instead, arrange for someone to drive you home before you begin drinking.

3. Download Uber, Lyft or save taxi phone numbers before the big game starts. Your future self with thank you for planning ahead. Earn yourself bonus points by saving your credit card details in the app, too. That way, you can order and pay for a ride with the touch of a button or two.

Whether you’re a die hard Patriots fan or will be sporting your Falcons red this weekend, make sure you do it safely!
