With fall football season in full swing, it’s important to recognize that there are times when the chance of meeting a drunk driver on the road are higher. Statistics show that in major cities throughout the United States, there are more DUIs before, during, and immediately after an NFL football game than any other major sport. This doesn’t have to apply to highways and sidestreets near the stadium. Thousands of bars, restaurants and private parties play host to fans and revelers. A drunk driver could be driving anywhere.

While most people know to stay off the roads on New Year’s Eve. you may not immediately associate football and drunk driving. Believe or not, some people imbibe during a good Falcons game or S.E.C.contest. That’s why it is important to realize that football season is in full swing, and that means football is on and parties are happening from Friday night through Sunday night.

If you are injured in a car accident and you believe the other driver was drinking, contact the police immediately.
