Safe driving on Super Bowl Sunday

The New England Patriots and the New York Giants will meet in the Super Bowl on Sunday, playing a little football between the onslaught of ads. For fans, the Super Bowl is an excuse to spend the day eating and drinking their way through viewing parties.

The Washington Regional Alcohol Program, a McLean-based group that campaigns against drunk driving, wants to warn revelers to be careful on Sunday. The organization issued some suggestions to help keep drunk drivers off the road:

●Plan ahead by picking a designated driver if you plan on drinking.

● Use alternative transportation like cabs, Metrorail and buses.

● If you’re hosting, make sure to have non-alcoholic drinks available.

● If you spot any drunk drivers on the road, dial 911 in Maryland and the District. If you’re in Virginia, dial #77.

● Buckle up.

If you do drive on Sunday, use extra caution on the roads. Last year, dozens of suspected drunk drivers were arrested on Super Bowl Sunday.
