Be Careful This Super Bowl Sunday

drunk-driving-40575_1280_0With the Super Bowl swiftly approaching, our team of car accident attorneys at Weiser & Associates wish to remind you to have a safe and responsible celebration. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there is a giant increase in drunk-driving fatalities each year on Super Bowl Sunday and the morning thereafter.

The NHTSA reported that 43% of the traffic fatalities on that occurred on Super Bowl Sunday in 2012 were caused by drunk driving. In comparison to the annual average of 31% of drunk-driving fatalities, that is a huge increase.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) urges all persons celebrating the Super Bowl to have an assigned and responsible designated driver. MADD urges everyone to “play the most important position in the NFL: the designated driver,” which is why they’ve formed an alliance with the NFL to encourage this.
