According to the Buffalo News, 11 motorists were arrested for Driving While Intoxicated following the Bills-Oakland game on Sunday.
While most fans are responsible, a minority of them take the risk of driving while intoxicated. It doesn't make sense, especially when you look at the costs of DWI:
Attorney fees: $2,500
Insurance Pool Surcharge: $4,500
Additional Insurance Cost: $1,500
Fines: $500.00 (average)
Alcohol Evaluation / Treatment: $500
Minimum Cost = $9,500
These costs are not estimates, they're based on real data supplied by Erie County's Stop DWI Task Force. Fortunately nobody was injured or killed in any alcohol related accidents after the Bills game. It is tragic that people get behind the wheel after drinking, especially when many safe alternatives exist.
The best alternative is to appoint a designated driver for the day. We also recommend using chauffeured transportation. In addition to eliminating the problems of DWI, taking a limousine to the game makes it easy for you to enjoy 'tailgating' at the stadium, while providing a safe trip home for your group.
It's less expensive than you think, and way less expensive than a DWI/DUI. Taking 20 people to a Bills game in our stretch Hummer Limousine costs about $37 per person...and it is a lot of fun. Be advised that nearly all of our fleet sells out for Bills games, so it is wise to plan and reserve your transportation early!
