Avoid A Super Bowl Dui


“If you drive drunk, you, simply put, are a short sighted, utterly useless, oxygen wasting, human form of pollution,” said actress Helen Mirren in an upcoming Super Bowl ad for Anheuser-Busch. “A Darwin-award deserving, selfish coward. If your brain was donated to science, science would return it.”

Law enforcement will be out in full force this weekend to combat would-be drunk drivers as this will be the first time since 2003 that California has hosted the Super Bowl. Drivers can expect an increased number of sobriety checkpoints as well as saturation patrols in designated areas.

There are a few things that you can do to stay safe, avoid a DUI, and stay in the good graces of Helen Mirren.

Plan on using public transportation. This includes calling a cab, Uber, Lyft and, yes, even catching the bus.

Find a designated driver to hitch a ride with. Make sure that the designated driver actually remains sober. A designated driver who drinks even a little bit should no longer be a designated driver.

Remember it only takes a little alcohol to get a DUI even if the driver is under a 0.08 percent blood alcohol content or they don’t feel intoxicated. So if you’re not sure, don’t risk it.

However, if you must drive (and I don’t suggest that you do), alcohol dissipates from the body at an approximate rate of 0.5 ounces of alcohol per hour or 0.015 percent of blood alcohol content (BAC) per hour. I cannot stress this enough; this is an approximate calculation. The actual will vary based on individual characteristics of the person, what alcohol was consumed, and other factors.

The only surefire way to avoid a California DUI this Super Bowl Sunday is to just avoid the alcohol altogether.
