Super Bowl Safety

This Sunday February 2, 2014, many citizens will be celebrating Super Bowl XLVIII.  The Super Bowl is one of America’s most highly anticipated sports events, when friends and family gather in homes, bars and restaurants to celebrate. As Super Bowl Sunday approaches and football fans across the country prepare for the game, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), along with the National Football League (NFL) and Techniques for Effective Alcohol Management (TEAM) Coalition, have joined forces with Bryan and College Station’s local highway safety and law enforcement officials to spread the message about designating a sober driver on Super Bowl Sunday, because – Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.

Remember that in Texas, a person is legally intoxicated and may be arrested and charged with DWI with a .08 blood alcohol concentration (BAC).  Impairment begins with the first drink.  A person’s weight, the number of drinks, and the amount of food you have eaten can affect your body’s ability to handle alcohol.  This can affect you decision making ability and reaction time while operating a vehicle.  You may think you are okay, but in actuality you are a danger to others.  Our officers will be keeping the roadway safe this weekend and looking for impaired driving.  If you are drinking, have a plan ahead of time so your Super Bowl is fun and safe.

According to NHTSA, in 2011, 9,878 people were killed in alcohol-impaired-driving crashes. These crashes were 31 percent more likely to occur on weekends than on weekdays.
Whether attending the game, watching at a bar or hosting a party, NHTSA, TEAM Coalition, the NFL, The Brazos County Sheriff’s Office, The Bryan Police Department, The College Station Police Department and Texas A&M University remind everyone that Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.  Before choosing to drink, choose your team’s MVP – a sober designated driver. NHTSA offers these additional safety tips:

If you’re attending a Super Bowl party or watching the game at a sports bar or restaurant: 
? Designate your sober driver, or plan another way to get home safely before the party begins.
? If you don’t have a designated driver, then ask a sober friend for a ride home; call a cab, friend, or family member to come and get you; or just stay for the night. 
? Use your community’s sober ride program.
? Never let friends drive if they have had too much to drink.  

If you’re hosting a Super Bowl party:

? Make sure all your guests designate a sober driver in advance, or arrange for alternate transportation to ensure they get home safely.
? Serve food and include non-alcoholic beverages at the party.
? Stop serving alcohol at the end of the third quarter of the game and begin serving coffee and dessert.
? Keep the numbers for local cab companies handy, and take the keys away from anyone who has had too much to drink.

 And remember, your seat belt is your best defense against a drunk driver in a crash.

The safety of our community does not have borders.  It is the goal of every law enforcement agency to protect the citizens that we serve.  Be the eyes and ears of your police department.  When you see suspicious activity contact the College Station Police Department at 979-764-3600, the Texas A&M University Police Department at 979-845-2345, or the Bryan Police Department and the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office at 979-361-3888.  Together we can make a difference in our community.
