As hundreds of fans host Super Bowl parties, many partygoers who have partaken of alcohol will be hitting the road. To avoid a bad experience, here are some tips for the party host to help keep everyone safe.
- Encourage your guests who drink alcohol to designate a driver.
- Before kickoff, help arrange a designated driver for those quests who need one.
- Have plenty of non-alcoholic beverages and serve food throughout the game.
- Only serve alcohol to those quests over 21 years of age.
- Just like at the stadium, have a “last call” and stop serving alcoholic drinks at the beginning of the 4th quarter.
- Keep a watch over guests who are showing signs of having too much to drink.
- Have a list of cab phone numbers or save them in your cell for convenience.
- Make sure you remind your departing guests to drive alert, buckled, and composed. Stay extra alert for other motorists who appear to be impaired.
- Be prepared to have guests spend the night if an alternative way home
is not available.
Have a Safe Super Bowl Sunday,
