Super Bowl Sunday is one of America’s biggest and most entertaining national sporting events, but it is also one of the nation’s most dangerous days on the roadways. Increasingly seen as an “unofficial binge drinking holiday, Super Bowl Sunday is a peak day for many drunk driving accidents.

Do you know approximately how much beer is consumed during the Super Bowl? The latest estimates indicate that this Sunday, more than 325 million gallons of beer will be consumed; enough to fill almost 500 Olympic-size swimming pools.

If your Super Bowl plans include alcohol, plan ahead and designate a non-drinking driver. If you are hosting a party, follow these precautions.

  • Make sure all your guests designate their sober drivers or help arrange for a ride.
  • Serve plenty of food and offer a variety of non-alcoholic beverages.
  • Only serve alcohol to guests who are 21 or older.
  • Stop serving alcohol at least an hour before the party ends.
  • Take appropriate steps to prevent anyone from driving while impaired; call guests a cab or
    be prepared for guests to spend the night if an alternative way home is not available.
  • Make sure your guests act responsibly. If someone you serve ends up in a drunk driving accident, you can be held responsible.

Don’t get a penalty for drinking and driving, and don’t become a statistic. Enjoy the game and be a winner in the end.
