It’s almost time for the BIG GAME! It’s a celebrated American tradition that isn’t complete without your favorite snacks, the perfect spot on the couch, and raising a glass with friends and family.

Anheuser-Busch and Dana Distributors love being a part of these celebrated moments, and we would be remiss if we didn’t help ensure that holidays like this continue on safely for years to come.

Whether you’re hosting friends or heading out for the night, it’s important to have a game plan that makes sure everyone gets home safe. Drunk driving is never the right call.

We all need to do our part to make sure we’re not adding to the 300,000 daily incidents on average and 10,000 annual fatalities related to alcohol-impaired driving in the U.S.

We’re not just focused on getting people home safe after the game but also planning ahead by using Uber to get to your destination before kickoff. We’ve joined forces with Anheuser-Busch, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and Uber to form an initiative called Decide To Ride that is focused on ending drunk driving.

By focusing on preemptive planning, it makes it easier for people to make smart decisions at the end of the night.

It will take all of us to commit to this initiative if we intend to put an end to drunk driving. That’s why Anheuser-Busch and its wholesaler partners have invested more than $1 billion in responsible drinking initiatives and community-based programs to prevent underage drinking, impaired driving and other harmful uses of alcohol for over 35 years.

By working alongside Anheuser-Busch, Dana Distributors can serve as advocates to encourage our friends, families and neighbors to travel safely when enjoying the Big Game and every game moving forward.

We thank you for being on our team. Now let’s play some football!

    Such a nice story, I was looking for the small violins to come out.

    Like you said 35 years of trying to stop drunk driving and such and still no progress to the stoppage of it and that goes with the decades before your 35 years.

    Drink responsibly, good slogan except while you're being responsible the drunkenness' is creeping up and about to slap you in the head while being responsible.

    So if you're doing such a great job then why is there drunk drivers out there killing people?

    You and the drug community aren't stopping didly!
