Competition between the coaching brothers John and Jim Harbaugh add an unprecedented element of suspense to the game.

Fans and party hosts are advised not to take their eye off the ball when it comes to safety this weekend. Super Bowl Sunday can be a particularly dangerous time on the roads, as drivers with too much to drink hurry to and from party venues.

Here are some Super Bowl safety tips to help you enjoy the weekend without injury or penalty.

Safety Tips for Super Bowl Party Hosts

Social host alcohol liability should be a serious concern for all party-givers. As a host, you might be held legally responsible if one of your guests is in a drunken driving accident after consuming too much alcohol at your party.

Super Bowl party hosts can strive to protect their guests by adopting the following safety guidelines:

  • Never serve alcohol to minors
  • Encourage guests to drink responsibly or use designated drivers
  • Hire a professional bartender to serve drinks and refuse alcohol to those too intoxicated
  • Provide transportation for guests who shouldn’t drive home
  • Take the keys away from those who are intoxicated and let them stay in your home overnight
  • Keep your own alcohol consumption to a minimum so that you can be alert to signs of trouble

Safety Tips for Super Bowl Party Attendees

Plan to stay safe on Super Bowl Sunday in a manner similar to precautions you might take on New Year’s Eve.

  • Appoint a designated driver who agrees to abstain from alcohol
  • Pace your drinking over time to give your body time to absorb alcohol
  • Eat sufficient food so that you are not drinking on an empty stomach
  • Call a cab if you find that you are not comfortable driving

However you choose to celebrate Super Bowl Sunday, buckle up, look out for your friends, and have fun!
