NFL Reminds Super Bowl Fans that “Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk”

The Super Bowl is the highlight of the year for football fans, especially when a local team is playing. In 2012, the New England Patriots face off against the New York Giants. With both teams so close to home, New Hampshire Super Bowl parties are likely to be a blast this year. If you’re hosting a Super Bowl party, the NFL (National Football League) offers several ways you can help yourself and your guests avoid a New Hampshire drunk driving charge.

  • Make sure all guests have a sober ride home before they break out the drinks. Designated drivers, taxis, and public transportation are all good options for those who want to enjoy alcohol during the Super Bowl.
  • Give designated drivers the star treatment. Keep their non-alcoholic beverage topped off and give them the first shot at the snacks. Have designated drivers park in easy-to-reach spots, so it’s no trouble for them or their passengers to reach the car once it’s time to go home.
  • Make sure guests drinking alcohol have snacks as well, which can help prevent them from becoming overwhelmed by intoxication – and missing the best parts of the game.
  • Choose a time to stop serving alcohol, like one hour before the end of the party or at the end of the third quarter. Start passing around coffee and dessert at this time, and offer a variety of non-alcoholic drinks like soda, juices, and water.
