Responsible Rams fans celebrated a win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, December 29, 2019 to close out the season by pledging to prevent drunk driving and enter the Corona Extra Responsibility Has Its Rewards (RHIR) Sweepstakes. Fans autographed the responsibility wall and smiled for a souvenir photo as their pledge always to have a designated driver. Corona Extra and TEAM Coalition partnered with the Rams all season to promote responsible drinking at the Rams home games.
143 fans made the pledge to Relax Responsibly – never drive drunk and always have a designated driver. The 61 photos taken have been shared 109 times via text forwarding and social media.
Congratulations to Alfredo Loera Padilla – a responsible Rams fan from Whittier, CA – who was randomly selected as the weekly grand prize winner of the RHIR sweepstakes. The prize included a $250 NFLShop.com gift card.
US DOT / NHTSA 2018 NATIONAL DATA:
- In 2018, 10,511 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, an decrease of 3.6% from the 10,908 fatalities in 2017.
- Many, if not most of those lives would have been saved if people did not drive when they were impaired by alcohol or if they used sober, designated drivers or if they simply wore their seat belts.
- Statistics and research clearly show that 21-34 year old males are the demographic most likely to be involved in an automobile crash, drive when impaired by alcohol, and fail to buckle up.
