Arnold Law Firm Suggests Calling an Audible before Drinking and Driving Super Bowl Sunday
In 2013, ESPN estimated 108.4 million people watched Super Bowl XLVII, which means a large percentage of these people likely operated their vehicles while intoxicated.
At The Arnold Law Firm, our auto accident attorneys recommend following Payton Manning’s “Omaha” and call an audible before driving while intoxicated. According to the California Highway Patrol, there were 481 DUI arrests, 242 alcohol related car accidents, and seven DUI deaths on Super Bowl Sunday in 2006. That’s throughout the state of California alone.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), “alcohol-impaired crashes claimed a life every 51 minutes in 2010. On Super Bowl Sunday alone, 40 percent of fatalities from motor vehicle crashes were connected to drunk driving.”
Super Bowl XLVIII is expected to have over 100 million viewers, considering past viewings, therefore it is highly recommended to seek an alternate method of transportation following this terrific event. For those hosting a Super Bowl XLVIII party, here are some things to consider:
• You will be held responsible if you serve alcohol to someone involved in a drunk driving accident
• Assure guests designate sober drivers
• Help arrange alternate transportation for any intoxicated guest
• Offer lots of food and non-alcoholic beverages at party
• Keep local taxi numbers available to guests
• Stop serving alcohol at the end of the third quarter and start serving coffee and dessert
• Take keys away from intoxicated guests
There are plenty of alternate forms of transportation throughout the Sacramento area. This may include public transportation, paying for a taxi, or designating a sober driver. The following includes a list of Sacramento taxi companies and phone numbers which can be used on Super Bowl Sunday:
• Yellow Cab Company of Sacramento – (916) 444-2222
• Raystar Taxi – (916) 222-4499
• Americab – (916) 441-5555
• BC Cab – (916) 338-1212
• AAA Cab – (916) 271-1111
The Arnold Law Firm advises all auto accident injury victims to seek medical attention immediately following an accident, and to obtain legal advice from an attorney. May the best team win this Super Bowl Sunday.
