Editor, Ceres Courier,

Californians are looking forward to Super Bowl LIV on Feb. 2. The San Francisco 49ers, of our Golden State, will face the Kansas City Chiefs.

Football fans are ready for the big game. Food, drinks and watching funny commercials are some pleasures of Super Bowl Sunday. Drinkers cannot forget the most important part of their game plan:  a safe ride home. 

When I was 16 in 1992, a drunken driver hit me. My gait, hearing and speech were damaged. Not the Super Bowl anyone wants. 

Drinkers can make the right call no matter the outcome of the game. Before celebrations begin, choose a sober driver to take you home: friend, taxi, public transportation, etc. This avoids an arrest, fines, a meaningless injury or death.          

Don’t risk it!  Having a designated, sober driver is a key role on Super Bowl Sunday.    

Lori Martin,
