Washington Redskins Fans Always Have a Designated Driver

11/30/2015

Fans who attended the Washington Redskins game versus the New York Giants at FedEx Field on Sunday November 29, 2015 had even more to cheer about than the final score – Redskins- 20, Giants- 14. The Redskins dominated the Giants on the field, and Redskins fans showed incredible support for the home team in the Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge against their NFC East rivals. Hundreds of fans pledged to be Good Sports – designated drivers for their group. Responsible fans autographed a responsibility wall and received a free souvenir photo.

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.

US DOT / NHTSA 2014 NATIONAL DATA:

• In 2014, 9,967 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, a decrease of 1% from the 10,076 fatalities in 2013.

• 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.
