Plan for a safe ride home from Superbowl parties

From Erin G. Eggen

Frankfort, KY - Regardless of who Kentuckians choose to root for during Super Bowl LVIII, state officials are cheering on fans to make responsible choices behind the wheel. For those hosting a Super Bowl viewing party or attending one on Sunday, February 11, 2024, fans have an important job to do: help keep impaired drivers off the road so everyone can make it home safely on game night.

"As Kentuckians gear up for America's most-watched sporting event, fans are reminded to plan for a sober designated driver," said Gov. Andy Beshear. "Enjoy the big game, but please be responsible."

To prevent impaired driving-related crashes, the KOHS recommends the following:

  • Before festivities begin, plan a way to safely get home at the end of the night;
  • If impaired, use a ride-booking company or taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation;
  • If you see an impaired driver, safely pull over and contact law enforcement. You may dial the Kentucky State Police toll-free line directly at 800-222-5555 or call 911;
  • If you know people who are about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to their destination; and
  • Wear a seat belt! It is not only the law, it is the best defense against an impaired driver. Buckling up helps prevent injury and death if involved in a crash.
