Don’t Let Drunk Driving Spike On Game Day
Celebrate game day and get a safe ride home after the big game! This Sunday, over 100 million people in the U.S. are expected to watch one of America’s most anticipated sporting events. The Bowl gives fans and non-fans alike a chance to get together, enjoy food off the grill, and cold beer from the fridge.
But often lost between the watch parties and fun at local bars is this sobering fact: the number of deaths connected to drunk driving tends to spike on the day of the year’s biggest football game. During the 2015 Super Bowl, 45 people died in motor vehicle crashes where alcohol was a factor.
The number of crashes due to drunk driving is startling- and completely avoidable. That’s why Uber is teaming up with Tostitos and our friends at Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) to give football fans $10 off their Uber ride on Sunday, February 5. To claim your discounted ride, enter into your Uber app the last five numbers of the UPC code found on the back of participating Tostitos products. These promos are available in stores across the country while supplies last.
Whether it’s the day of the big game or just another night out, Uber and MADD ask everyone to plan ahead. Be responsible and get a designated driver.
Uber is proud to serve as the Official Designated Driving App of Mothers Against Drunk Driving. To learn more about our partnership, visit our website.
