Some suggestions for Super Bowl safety

In an effort to make this Sunday really super and safe, the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety wants to remind everyone to designate a sober driver for your Super Bowl Party. The Coalition's message this year is Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.  
The Super Bowl is one of America’s most highly anticipated sports and party events of the year. Leanna Depue, with the Missouri Coalition, says that in 2013, there were 198 people killed on Missouri roadways in crashes involving a substance-impaired driver. 
 
The coalition offers the following party plans to make sure you and your guests arrive home safely this Sunday night.
*   If you’re attending a Super Bowl party or watching the game at a sports bar or restaurant: 
*   Designate your sober driver, or plan another way to get home safely before the party begins. 
*   If you don’t have a designated driver, then ask a sober friend for a ride home; call a cab, friend, or family             member to come and get you; or just stay for the night. 
*   Never let friends drive if they’re had too much to drink. 
*   If you know someone who is about to drive while impaired, take the keys and help them make safe travel           arrangements.
 
If you’re hosting a Super Bowl party:
*   Make sure all of your guests designate a sober driver in advance, or arrange for alternate transportation to         ensure they get home safely. 
*   Serve food and include non-alcoholic beverages at the party. 
*   Stop serving alcohol at the end of the third quarter of the game and begin serving coffee and dessert. 
*   Keep the numbers for local cab companies handy, and take the keys away from anyone who has had too         much to drink.

Local company offering free rides home tonight

Tonight is not just Thanksgiving Eve, it is also one of the biggest party and bar nights of the entire year.

So one Missouri company is hoping to keep it a safe holiday for revelers.  ScooterGuy is a designated driving service in St. Louis and Kansas City and they will provide free rides home tonight  from 5 pm to 3 am.

Here’s how it works. ScooterGuy teams meet their client at the requested pickup location. The driver, who is fully insured, will give their client a ride home in the the client's own car. The ScooterGuy driver will be picked up by another team member so the customer AND their car arrive home safely.

Last year, ScooterGuy gave more than 100 free rides on Thanksgiving Eve and over 400 rides during the entire holiday weekend.
