Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk, So Game Plan for a ‘Super Sunday’

Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk, So Game Plan for a ‘Super Sunday’

 

The Super Bowl is America’s most watched national sporting event, and on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 1, there will be lots of game day socializing that may include drinking. That’s why The Resource Training Center of Amherst, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and local law enforcement officials are urging football fans to choose sides now: drinking OR driving. If you plan on drinking on Super Bowl Sunday, these organizations encourage you to designate a sober driver to get you home safely!

The group, called The Family and Loved Ones Support and Educational Group, will be open to anyone who has either a family member, friend or someone addicted to drugs or alcohol, according to Timothy Logsdon, the owner of Inner Quest Drug Services, who partnered with Amherst to help form the group.

Logsdon has experience working with the Amherst drug court to help parents and loved ones deal with substance abuse problems.

"Addictions are so misunderstood in our culture, it's a way to clear it up and find answers to that," Logsdon said.
