US DOT – NHTSA & Local Police Advise People To Designate Driver For Superbowl Parties

So the Chiefs are in the Super Bowl…with the big game to be played on Sunday also comes some friendly advice from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Region-7 of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The N-H-T-S-A is teaming up with local law enforcement in the five-state region warning that, if you go to a Super Bowl gathering and consume alcohol, it would be a good wager for you to have a designated driver to get you home safely.

The campaign is being dubbed as “Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk” with the goal of keeping you from an up-close-and-personal” meeting with the law.

In 2020 alone, nationwide, there more than 11,600 people killed in drunk driving crashes.

The N-H-T-S-A also sends out the warning to those planning to host a Super Bowl gathering to help enforce the idea of designated drivers and to have plenty of snacks and non-alcoholic beverages also available to your guests.
