GHSA: How to Host a Super Bowl Party, Safely

Hoping to ensure that everyone stays safe on the night of the big game, the Governors Highway Safety Association offers the following strategies from its playbook.

For Super Bowl party hosts:

  • Make sure all your guests have a designated sober driver before kickoff.
  • Find unique ways to recognize the designated drivers at your party.
  • Serve plenty of food – and include soft drinks, juice, and water.
  • Stop serving alcohol at the end of the third quarter of the game (just like NFL stadiums) and begin serving coffee and dessert.
  • Take the keys away from anyone who appears impaired.
  • Only serve alcohol to guests over 21 years of age.

For those attending a Super Bowl party or watching the game at a sports bar or restaurant:

  • Designate your driver before the party begins, or better yet, be a designated driver.
  • Give your designated driver your car keys.
  • Before you go out, program the numbers for local cab companies in your cell phone. If you find yourself in need of a ride, it is easily accessible.
  • Avoid drinking too much alcohol too fast. Pace yourself – eat enough food, take breaks and alternate with non-alcoholic drinks.
  • Never let a friend leave your sight if you think they are about to drive while impaired. Remember, Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.
  • Always buckle up--it's your best defense against impaired drivers.
  • Show your appreciation to your designated driver by offering to be the designated driver the next time you go out; picking up the tab for his/her food and drink; covering the cost for parking; or even paying for a tank of gas.
