Save $20 thousand -- Don't drive home from the Super Bowl party drunk

Bankrate reports that "According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 130 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in drunk driving related traffic accidents during Super Bowl weekend in 2006. Young men ages 21 to 34 are the core audience for major sporting events and are also the most likely to drive while impaired, according to the NHTSA."

Bankrate adds that the total costs associated with a drunk driving arrest can easily top a whopping $20 thousand. So even if you are selfish and don't care about endangering the lives of innocent people, drunk driving is a pretty bad deal.

So have fun at your Super Bowl party. But please drink responsibly and if you can't do that, then at least don't drive.

It's a bad deal for eveybody.
