Super Bowl Sunday is making its fast approach which means you’re undoubtedly preparing the nachos, hot dogs, and, most likely, the beer. While we wish that you have a wonderful and fun time celebrating the victors of the NFL, our Mobile car accident attorneys wish to remind you to enjoy your fun responsibly and safely.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are a massive amount of fatal accidents on Super Bowl Sunday that caused by drunk driving. A recent statistic showed that 31% of fatal car crashes in 2012 was caused by drunk driving, while 43% of the fatal crashes that occurred on Super Bowl Sunday alone were caused by drunk driving. The volume of drivers increases after the game ends and, unfortunately, this statistics shows that many of them are under the influence of alcohol.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) urge all persons that are enjoying the Super Bowl to have a designated driver. They have partnered with the NFL to spread the reminder that the most important person in the game is the designated driver. You can read more about their message here.
