Fans who attended the Washington Redskins game versus the New York Giants at FedExField on Sunday January 1, 2017 were treated to an exciting day of division rivalry football. Redskins fans showed amazing support for the home team in the Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge against their NFC East rivals. Over one thousand fans pledged to be Good Sports – designated drivers for their group. Responsible fans autographed a responsibility wall and received a free souvenir photo.

The positive contributions made by TEAM are far reaching. Its mission is important to fans and spectators in stadiums, but its message also contributes to responsible conduct in our communities at large. The NFL strongly supports the TEAM program, and we are proud to be a member of the TEAM Coalition.Roger Goodell, Commissioner, National Football League

US DOT / NHTSA 2015 NATIONAL DATA:

• In 2015, 10,265 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, an increase of 3.2% from the 9,943 fatalities in 2014.

• Many, if not most of those lives would have been saved if people did not drive when they were impaired by alcohol or if they used sober, designated drivers or if they simply wore their seat belts.

• Statistics and research clearly show that 21-34 year old males are the demographic most likely to be involved in an automobile crash
