DON’T BECOME A STATISTIC
Jacksonville, FL has hosted one of the most prominent college football games since 1933, the Florida Georgia football game. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, October 28, 2023. With thousands of people attending the game, the event will also bring even more patrons to downtown Jacksonville.
During football season, fans have hours to drink excessively. After games, an increase of traffic accidents occur, some being fatal due to drunk driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated, in 2022 there were over 3,052 injuries and 406 fatalities due to drunk-driving crashes in Florida. If you have been drinking, don’t drive. The National Bureau of Economic Research has been proven ride-sharing has decreased alcohol-related US traffic fatalities by approximately 6% and has reduced deaths by 4%. Don’t be a statistic, The Law Offices of Barnes and Cohen & The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reminds you to “drive sober or get pulled over”!
