Super Bowl Sunday combines football, and alcohol, which means that motorists driving home after the game are at a high risk of being pulled over by officers, and being subjected to an alcohol test.
Every year, federal authorities take DUI risks over Super Bowl Sunday very seriously. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in fact undertakes a designated driver campaign every year before the big game. The campaign encourages people, who are driving back home after watching the game and may not be in a position to drive, to hand over the wheel to someone else instead.
Look into designated driver services in the Denver area. These are for-profit designated driver services, and the services that they offer are typically based two methods. In the first, the driver will arrive at your venue in a scooter, which is designed to be and foldable into a bag. After driving you back home in your car, he will simply drive back on his scooter. In the other method, the designated driver will arrive with another team member in his own car, and after driving you home, will drive back in the other car.
However, the incidence of drunk driving on Super Bowl Sunday is not the highest in the year. Denver DUI lawyer find that other holidays also see much higher levels of driving involving high alcohol concentrations. For instance, the December to March season has the highest number of days when motorists are arrested for an average blood-alcohol concentration of about .06%. That is a legally permissible level, but Denver DUI lawyers find that it is the level at which some impairments begin to kick in. Valentine’s Day also sees high DUI rates.
Apart from Super Bowl Sunday, New Year’s Eve and the Fourth of July also see heavy alcohol consumption, and therefore greater rates of DUI.
