Responsible Minnesota Vikings fans earned valuable rewards at the Vikings game at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, October 9, 2016. The Vikings, Miller Lite and Techniques for Effective Alcohol Management (TEAM) Coalition partnered to promote responsible drinking and traffic safety.
More than 500 fans at the game made the pledge to be a designated driver for their group. Fans who pledged received a free souvenir photo, instant prizes and a chance to be selected as the Designated Driver for the Season. Throughout the season, one randomly selected, responsible fan will win the Responsibility Has Its Rewards sweepstakes. The prize will include two tickets to Super Bowl LI. Every fan who received a photo was also directed to MillerLiteResponsibility.com to enter for a chance to win a Ford Fusion SE.
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.
