Designate a Sober Driver for Super Bowl Celebrations
The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles Virginia Highway Safety Office encourages you to designate a sober driver for Super Bowl celebrations and to choose a HERO to stay sober before leaving for a party.
Super Bowl Sunday is one of the most dangerous days of the year to drive due to the high number of alcohol impaired drivers. Last year in 2008 there were three deaths on Virginia’s roads, two of them alcohol-related.
“Getting caught driving while impaired will earn you a costly penalty from local law enforcement, and could likely result in loss of your driving privileges and even jail time,” said VAHSO Director John Saunders. “Impaired-driving crashes and fatalities can be prevented. Designating a sober driver should be on the top of everyone’s Super Bowl party list.”
Please use good sense this Sunday and plan on not driving anywhere after drinking any amount of alcohol. Virginia has some of the toughest DUI laws in the nation and most people are surprised at how few drinks it takes to be legally drunk.
Getting a DUI can be expensive and can land you in jail or without a drivers license for a year or more. Most people can’t afford the fines and the disruption to their daily life.
