Freehold: Sheriff Shaun Golden wants to ensure that game day, will be a safe day for all to enjoy, as the excitement of Super Bowl LI rises.
“Please play it safe on Super Bowl Sunday,” said Sheriff Shaun Golden. “We want all to enjoy the football festivities with family and friends, but, if you are going to drink don’t drive, it’s as simple as that. Law enforcement will be out in full force and on the lookout for drunk drivers.”
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, drunk driving accounts for almost one of every three deaths on our roads every year and in 2015, 10,265 people were killed in drunk driving crashes.
In an effort to avoid presenting a danger to oneself or others, it’s important to follow these safety tips:
- Before going out, designate a driver who will not consume any alcohol the entire night.
- DO NOT DRIVE if you are impaired. Call a cab, a sober friend or family member. If you don’t have a ride, stay where you are.
- If you see someone about to get behind the wheel or on a motorcycle after they have been drinking, take their keys and find them a ride with someone who is sober.
- Under no circumstances should adults provide alcohol to a minor or allow anyone under 21 to consume alcohol at their home.
- If you are hosting a party, be aware of just how much guests are consuming and DO NOT let them get behind the wheel while impaired.
“By applying these tips we can help ensure a safe, secure, enjoyable and entertaining Super Bowl Sunday,” said Sheriff Golden.
