Enjoy the Super Bowl, but Protect Yourself from Car Accidents, Too

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on February 2, 2012

The Super Bowl offers the chance for one of the biggest parties of the year, even when both teams’ “home turf” is all the way across the country. If you plan to watch the game and celebrate with friends this Sunday, you can help protect yourself and others from car accidents caused by drunk driving by following a few simple steps.

First, decide on a sober way to get home before you leave for a party or sports bar. Choose a designated driver, arrange for a cab, or make sure you can get home on public transportation or by foot. Not only will you help protect yourself by staying off the road, but you’ll help protect others by keeping one more impaired driver off the streets if you end up having one drink too many.

If you’re drinking alcohol, pace yourself. Have non-alcoholic drinks, and snacks as well, to help your body absorb the alcohol. Take breaks between drinks. It’s no fun to watch the Super Bowl if you can’t remember what happened.

Finally, if you have a designated driver, show that person how much you appreciate his or her help by offering to pay for gas or pick up the tab. Buckle your seatbelt when you’re riding along as it’s your best protection in a crash.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, the experienced Washington drunk driving accident lawyers at Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. can help.
