A lot of us will be heading out to a Super Bowl party this weekend, and while watching the big game with all your friends and a couple of brewskis is great, we all really need to be concerned about what happens after the final touch down is scored.
A new report by Alcohol Monitoring Systems finds that Super Bowl Sunday is very dangerous when it comes to the roads, with incidents of drunk driving by repeat offenders increasing 22% as compared to a regular Sunday.
And folks in Georgia and New England should be the most concerned. Data shows that areas with a team competing in the Super Bowl can see double or triple the violations as compared to a regular Sunday. In fact, in 2015, the last time the New England Patriots competed, Super Bowl Sunday violations in the New England area were two time higher than the rest of the country and 103% higher than a usual Sunday for the region.
