Gathering friends and family around the TV on Super Bowl Sunday is a fan favorite in America. It is one of the most widely watched national events, with millions tuning in time to watch.
With the increased drinking that occurs at Super Bowl events, you can expect a greater police presence, including DWI checkpoints and police stops for suspicion of “drunk driving.” We want you to have a great time, but be safe.
Tips on Avoiding a Super Bowl Sunday DWI Arrest
Here are some tips on how to eliminate your risk of getting charged with a DWI on Super Bowl Sunday.
Do not drink and drive – A DWI charge is the quickest way to ruin Super Bowl Sunday. Texas police are well aware that many people’s plans involve alcohol, so do not take the risk. If you plan to drive, then stay sober.
Designate a driver – Either make a plan with someone, hitch a ride from a non-drinking friend, or schedule a ride with a taxi service.
Be a responsible party host – If you notice a party attendee who has been drinking and plans to drive, stop them immediately. Even being “buzzed” can be considered drunk driving under the law. Have a plan in place to get rides for your guests if they are needed last minute.
