Supporters who came out to the Houston Dynamo versus FC Dallas game cheered proudly as the their hometown Dynamo took on their in-state rival at BBVA Compass Stadium on August 27, 2016.
Supporters who took the Good Sport pledge helped the Houston Dynamo earn points in the Budweiser Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge against FC Dallas, a friendly competition presented by Budweiser to find out which club can sign up the most Good Sports – designated drivers who promise not to drink and ensure a safe ride home for their group and responsible drinkers who promise never to drive drunk. Supporters who took the pledge autographed the responsibility wall and received a free souvenir photo. Partners in the program include the Dynamo, Budweiser, Silver Eagle Distributors and TEAM Coalition.
US DOT / NHTSA 2015 NATIONAL DATA:
- In 2015, 10,265 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, an increase of 3.2% from the 9,943 fatalities in 2014.
- 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.
