Football fans across America will tune in tomorrow to see an Iowa native quarterback and his team in the season finale. Besides being Superbowl Sunday, it’s also considered one of the worst days of the year to be on the road — due to the prevalence of drunk drivers. Ranisa Rubin is spokeswoman for the Insurance Information Institute. She says on Superbowl Sunday 1997, there were 102 traffic deaths nationwide and 58 of them were alcohol-related. There were two traffic deaths in Iowa that day, one was alcohol-related. Rubin says Iowans who’re throwing parties need to keep from being tackled by booze.Rubin says it’s a wise idea to have lots of food and non-alcoholic drinks to serve guests. She also recommends serving tea or coffee toward the end of the party while encouraging designated drivers.She says in Iowa, party hosts CAN be held held financially responsible for their guests’ actions after they leave the party.
