It's Game Day. You're dressed in your favorite player's jersey, your lucky socks and you are ready to go. Here are some helpful tips to make sure you enjoy yourself and don't put a damper on the day:
- If you drink, don't drive. Use common sense - driving after you have had a few drinks seriously impairs your reaction time as well as your judgement. Take advantage of public transportation, call a cab, or have a designated driver pick you up from the game.
- Be aware of other drivers on the road. Studies show that one in 12 people are intoxicated when leaving a major sporting event which means the chances of you being involved in an accident are increased. If you remain alert and aware of your surroundings and the behaviors of other drivers, you're likely going to keep yourself and your family safe.
- If you suspect a driver is drunk, report them. You can call 911 and let the dispatcher know the location of the vehicle. Do not pursue the vehicle and remain at a safe distance. By reporting them, you may be saving someone's life.
- If you have been in an accident, call the police right away.
- Finally, if there is an emergency while you are at the event, remain calm. Listen to the officials inside the venue and follow their directions. Panic leads to hysteria and that is what causes people to get injured. Keep your wits about you, remain calm, and help those around you if you are able.
