Along with the start of school and end of summer comes the start of football season. While football continues to be America’s favorite sport, game days—both college and NFL—are among the heaviest alcohol consumption days. Whether watching the game at a bar or a friend’s house, people are typically consuming alcohol while watching. Sadly, football season is a season that claims many DUI victim in Georgia and nationwide because more people are drinking and driving during this time of the year.
As a Peachtree City drunk driving victim attorney, the Law Offices of Shane Smith sues drunk drivers and supports advocacy organizations like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) to bring awareness to the dangers of driving while under the influence. Currently, MADD and the National Football League have partnered to remind fans to “play the most important position in the NFL—the designated driver!”
The Law Offices of Shane Smith also stands along with MADD to bring attention to this very real problem in hopes of reducing game day drinking and driving behavior. While MADD and the NFL have raised awareness over the years about the dangers of drunk driving on game days, we would still like to remind Georgians of the following:
- Select a non-drinking designated driver before the game
- Plan on taking a taxi after the game
- Call a sober friend or relative to pick you up
- Don’t let others drive drunk
