Super Bowl Weekend brings increase in drunk driving accidents

You likely need no reminder that the Super Bowl is coming up this weekend. While Texas is not represented on the field, the game is of course being hosted in Houston. Texans from all over the state will be watching the game, including fans here in and around Dallas.

While Super Bowl Sunday is typically a great time to enjoy food, friends and football, it can also be dangerous. Sporting events - live or on TV - are associated with drinking alcohol, and that often leads to drunk driving. In fact, this weekend traditionally sees a significant spike in the number of DUI arrests and alcohol-related car accidents. As a result, it is important that you think twice about when you will be traveling this weekend. 

Texans love football so much that the Texas DOT devoted a page on its website to keeping football fans safe on the road. TxDOT's "Plan While You Can" campaign reminds drivers to find alternative transportation before the game starts if they plan on drinking.

But even if you aren't drinking, you may want to avoid driving around after the game ends. While police departments around Texas are on high alert for drunk drivers, they cannot prevent every drunk driving accident.

Despite the warnings, risks and criminal consequences, drunk driving kills more than 10,000 people per year on U.S. roads. Rates of injury and disability related to drunk driving are even higher.

Preventing a drunk driving accident is always the goal. But if you or a loved one is ever seriously injured (or a loved one has been killed) by a drunk driver, you may be able to pursue justice in civil as well as criminal court. Please discuss your case with an experienced personal injury attorney to learn more about your rights and options.
