Football is Back – Celebrate Responsibly

Posted By Anapol Weiss on this September 8, 2017 at 1:11 pm

The Birds are back for another raucous season, with opening weekend just a couple days away. But before you hit the field this Sunday, make safe choices and celebrate responsibly.

From 2006-2016, there were 53,721 DUI arrests in Philly – and roughly 8% of those arrests occurred on Sundays during football season.

We’ve mapped out all these arrests and created a tool that allows you to plot your route in the Philly area. Explore the map and discover just how many DUI arrests occur on your way to “The Linc.”

Here’s an example of how it works: Lincoln Financial Field to the Vince Papales Dad’s House (address used in “Invincible”).

Stay Safe on Game Day

  • Drink responsibly. It only takes an average 180-lb man about 4 drinks over the course of a couple hours to hit the legal .08 blood alcohol limit.
  • Plan ahead for a safe ride home. There’s no shortage of ridesharing services in Philly. Avoiding a DUI and a dangerous situation is as easy as hailing a taxi, calling an Uber, or hailing a Lyft.
  • Follow the Code of Conduct. Lincoln Financial Field has a Code of Conduct that prohibits excessive alcohol consumption.
  • Walking home drunk is dangerous. Roughly 12% of alcohol-related fatalities in Pennsylvania involved intoxicated pedestrians.

Be mindful, stay safe, and Fly Eagles Fly!
