St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in America date back to the country’s founding. While this year’s celebration may look a little different in your hometown, however you celebrate, make sure you and your friends stay safe this St. Paddy’s Day. If you plan to drink, it’s essential that you plan for a sober designated driver. To help keep your community safe, TEAM Coalition is teaming up with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to spread the message about the dangers of drunk driving and promote the benefits of having a plan to get home safely.
According to NHTSA, 10,142 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes in 2019. On average, more than 10,000 people were killed each year from 2015 to 2019. This is why TEAM Coalition is working with NHTSA and all our member organizations to encourage sports and entertainment fans to be responsible. During that same 5-year period, 5.5 million sports and entertainment fans made the pledge to prevent drunk driving by being designated drivers, having designated drivers, using public transportation or taking a ride share.
