Drunk driving accidents coincide with Texas football games

Over 1,700 alcohol-related cases of vehicular accidents were recorded in 2013 on days when a Texas college or professional football game was happening, KYTX reported on October 10. The link between football games and drunk driving accidents are apparently on a rising trend.

Department of Public Safety Trooper Jean Dark warns those intending to go to football games over the weekend to construct a plan before-hand that prevents anyone from driving under the influence of alcohol.

In Texas, a driving while intoxicated offense can result in a fine up to $3,000. Beyond that, a drunk driving accident can result in serious injury and even death, affecting many more people than just yourself.
