San Diego Chargers Fans Always Have a Designated Driver

10/26/2015

Fans who attended the San Diego Chargers game versus the Oakland Raiders at Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday October 25, 2015 were treated to a great day of football in San Diego. The Chargers fought hard and played well, and Chargers fans showed amazing support for the home team in the Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge against their AFC West rivals. Over a thousand fans pledged to be Good Sports – designated drivers for their group. Responsible fans autographed a responsibility inflatable football and received a free souvenir photo.

Each designated driver is worth a “touchdown” (6 points) in the competition. The Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge winner will be the team with the most points at the end of the season. Click here to see the Challenge Standings.

The Chargers are also participating in the Responsibility Bowl, a league-wide tournament encouraging responsible fan behavior with respect to alcohol. The Chargers are facing a very tough Round 2 opponent in the Chicago Bears. See how teams stack up on Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.

The positive contributions made by TEAM are far reaching. Its mission is important to fans and spectators in stadiums, but its message also contributes to responsible conduct in our communities at large. The NFL strongly supports the TEAM program, and we are proud to be a member of the TEAM Coalition.Roger Goodell, Commissioner, National Football League

US DOT / NHTSA 2013 NATIONAL DATA:

• In 2013, 10,076 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, a decrease of 2.4% from the 10,322 fatalities in 2012.

• 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.
