For football fans in the U.S., Super Bowl Sunday is a national holiday. From burgers and brews to the game itself, Super Bowl gatherings are a recipe for a good time.
However, Super Bowl Sunday also results in far too many drunk driving-related fatalities every year, especially in the Hampton Roads and Norfolk areas. We at Kalfus & Nachman PC have devised a way to help would-be buzzed or drunk drivers get home safely and avoid harming themselves and others.
Kalfus & Nachman’s Safe Ride Home Program
If you live or will be celebrating the Super Bowl in Virginia’s 757 area code, you may be able to participate in our firm’s Safe Ride Home Program. From kick-off time until midnight on Super Bowl Sunday, our firm will cover taxi and ridesharing fares up to $30.00 for riders over 21 years of age who are travelling from a restaurant or bar to a private residence. In order to take advantage of our safe riding reimbursement program, you must use Norfolk Black & White Cab Company, Uber, or Lyft.
After getting home safely and obtaining your receipt, send it to the following address:

Are You Sober Enough to Drive?
If you have to ask, the answer is probably “no.” And when assessing your level of sobriety, your safety and that of others on the road depends on your willingness to be honest. If you have any reservations at all about driving yourself home on Super Bowl Sunday, don’t take the risk.
It is generally best to call a cab or ridesharing service if any of the following are true:
- You have had more than one drink over the course of the past hour.
- You are having trouble balancing or walking in a straight line.
- You find it difficult to touch your nose with your finger.
- You have not have too much to drink but still feel “buzzed.”
Even if you’re not certain that you are too drunk to drive, it is always best to take the safest possible option and call a ridesharing service or a taxi. This Super Bowl Sunday, let us help you get home safe.
