Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk, So Game Plan for a ‘Super Sunday’

Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk, So Game Plan for a ‘Super Sunday’

 

The Super Bowl is America’s most watched national sporting event, and on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 1, there will be lots of game day socializing that may include drinking. That’s why The Resource Training Center of Amherst, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and local law enforcement officials are urging football fans to choose sides now: drinking OR driving. If you plan on drinking on Super Bowl Sunday, these organizations encourage you to designate a sober driver to get you home safely! 

CBP Launches Border Wait Time App

CBP Launches Border Wait Time App

 

Last week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) launched a free Border Wait Time app that makes it easier for travelers to plan their trip across the border. Among its features, the app provides estimated wait times and open lane statuses at land ports of entry. This allows travelers to make better-informed decisions of the time and place they should cross the border. Wait times for pedestrian, passenger and commercial vehicle crossings are broken down by lane type (standard, SENTRI, NEXUS, FAST, Ready Lane, etc.). You can download the app from Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

“When we’re out celebrating the holidays, we cannot forget to designate a sober driver who will get us home safely at the end of the night,” said Monica Farrar, director of The Resource Training Center in Amherst. “Nothing can kill the buzz of the holidays quicker than a buzzed or impaired driver out on the road.”
