Are You Ready for Some Football?

DCTMA’s Super Tips to Keep You Super Safe on Bowl Sunday

 Media, PA – Order the pizza n’ wings. Check. Pick your winning team. Check. Have Uber on standby. Check. Designate a sober driver. Check.

Are you ready for game day?0127171340b - CopyTicket

This Sunday, football fans across Delaware County will stock up on snacks and spirits, gearing up for Super Bowl 51. Traditionally, it’s a night known for celebrations, but before you tackle the party, DCTMA reminds you to keep safety as top priority.

As part of its Community Project Safety Project, DCTMA has launched a campaign to keep drivers under the influence off the roads. The DCTMA team will be out and about this week delivering important messages to popular pizza places throughout the county.  Be on the lookout for those special “Super Bowl Check List” messages attached to your dinner order.
You’ll score a FREE Uber code for $15 dollars off your first Uber ride! Touchdown!

If you don’t take Uber, be sure to designate a sober driver for the night before the party begins.

In 2015, more than 10 thousand people were killed in drunk driving crashes. Rather than a tragic loss of life due to drunk driving, remember Super Bowl 2017 for a big win and fun memories. And, however you and your guests travel, always buckle up. Your seat belt is your best defense in any vehicle crash.
