Keep yourself and your friends safe this Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl Sunday is here, and it's important to make sure you and your friends don't get behind the wheel while intoxicated. It's easy to have too much to drink when you're having a good time, so make a plan in advance to get home safely, so you don't do something you'll regret later.

It's illegal to drive in the United States if you have a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher, and even if your BAC is lower than that, you can be stopped if you have been driving erratically. You can get pulled over, arrested and prosecuted. If you are convicted, you could pay up to $10,000 in fines. On top of that, there is a very real risk that you could be involved in a serious accident that hurts another person.

Designate a sober driver for the evening to help both you and your friends stay safe. If you all want to drink, then consider taking a taxi, bus service or service like Uber or Lyft to get where you want to go.

Around three people die in the time it takes to watch a single football game. In 2015, 10,265 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes. Knowing this, it's all the more important that you protect yourself and your loved ones from making a terrible mistake.

Even if you take these steps, it's possible that another person could strike you one the drive home. That person's negligence should be questioned. As a victim, you have a right to compensation for your injuries. Our website has more information on what to do after you're hurt in a car accident with a drunk driver.
