Fans Don't Let Fans Drive Impaired
Football fans across the country will celebrate America’s most watched national sporting event, Super Bowl LI, on Sunday, February 5. For many, the celebration will include drinking alcohol. That’s why prosecutors and law enforcement officials are teaming up with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for a special Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk reminder to urge all football fans to call the right play on Super Bowl weekend by passing the keys to a sober driver before the drinking begins.
Impaired driving is illegal, plain and simple. Play it safe and never drive after having even one drink. Remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
This Super Bowl Season the Idaho TSRP recommends these safe alternatives to drinking and driving:
- Plan a safe way home before the fun begins.
- Designate a sober driver or use public transportation to get home safely.
- Download NHTSA’s SaferRide mobile app at www.nhtsa.gov/link/saferride/.
- If you know people who are about to drive or ride after drinking, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely.
- The Idaho Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor is also encouraging everyone to speak up when they encounter someone who should not be driving. The choices are simple: indviduals who have been drinking either need to stay where they are or get a ride. If someone doesn't make the right choice, it could be fatal. Courageous voices need to speak up. Call 911. It is better to call 911 before the crash, then calling 911 after the crash.
