Stay Safe on Super Bowl Sunday

by NPHM | January 27th, 2020

Whether or not your team is playing, everyone has a reason to enjoy Super Bowl Sunday. The biggest game of the year is a great time to hang out with friends, eat, drink, and be merry.

Unfortunately, like on any holiday that involves alcohol, Super Bowl Sunday is also a dangerous day to be on the roads. According to Nielsen, 50 million cases of beer are sold each year in the two weeks leading up to the game, and many partygoers don’t play it safe before driving home after Super Bowl parties that include alcohol.

To make sure you don’t contribute to a drunk driving statistic this year, follow these five simple rules.

Hosting a Super Bowl Party? Here’s What You Need to Know

Although car accidents after all the party goers head home are the biggest danger on Super Bowl Sunday, they aren’t the only danger. If you are hosting a party, you have a moral obligation and a legal responsibility to keep your guests safe while they’re in your home. The team at Nurenberg Paris Injury Lawyers has prepared these tips for Super Bowl party hosts.

Tips for Your Home

  • Clear snow, ice, and fallen leaves away from your curb, sidewalk, and porch to reduce the risk of a guests slipping and hurting themselves.
  • Keep pets in another room away from guests; even if your dog or cat is normally friendly, they may react badly with large numbers of unfamiliar people in their space.

Tips for Interacting with Your Guests 

  • Make sure all guests know how they are getting home. Have numbers of local cab companies on hand, or prepare your guest room for a potential stay, if you have one.
  • Collect keys at the door to prevent drunk driving.
  • If you will have guests who are underage, make sure alcohol is out of reach or that they know it is off-limits.

Tips for Laying the Table

  • Find out if any of your guests have food allergies and take those items off the menu. Some food allergies are airborne, which means guests can have a reaction if the food item is in the same room, even if they do not touch or eat it themselves.
  • Make sure to cook your chicken wings, sausages, and other meat to the proper internal temperature.
  • Don’t leave food that is meant to be served hot or cold sitting at room temperature for more than two hours.
  • Make sure plenty of non-alcoholic drinks are available, and put away all alcohol at the end of the third quarter.
