What’s Your Game Plan?

A designated friend. A teammate. A ride-sharing service. The trusty, dependable taxi. A public bus, or train, or the Metro. Even a cycle rickshaw. Any of these would be better than getting behind the wheel after a day of tailgating.


In 2017, nearly 4,500 people were injured and close to 250 died in alcohol-related traffic crashes in Virginia. 100% of which were preventable. So, on game day, before you plan to drink, plan to answer this: What’s Your Game Plan?
