WASHINGTON – With football fans across the country preparing to watch and celebrate Sunday’s Super Bowl with friends and family, U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx reminds fans to enjoy the festivities responsibly and designate a driver if they intend to drink.

In 2013, 10,076 people died in crashes involving a drunk driver – one death every 52 minutes, according to NHTSA. More than half of those fatalities – 56 percent – happened during weekends (Friday 6 p.m. to Monday 5:59 a.m.).

“If you choose to drink, please make the winning decision that could save your life or the lives of others – find a sober driver to take you home,” Said NHTSA Administrator Mark Rosekind. “Each life lost because of drunk driving is preventable, so please designate a driver.”

NHTSA, the National Football League (NFL), and the Techniques for Effective Alcohol Management (TEAM) Coalition joined forces with local highway safety and law enforcement officials to remind revelers that Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.
