3 Game Day Safety Tips

Super Bowl Sunday is undoubtedly one of the most highly anticipated days of the year. Whether you’re watching to see what team wins, for the commercials, or for the halftime show, it’s important to remember that certain behaviors/decisions could have devastating consequences.

It is safe to assume on Super bowl Sunday you and others around you could become intoxicated and/or distracted. If you plan on traveling on Super Bowl Sunday, whether by car or on foot, remember that drunk driving and distracted driving have resulted in countless tragedies. Here are some safety tips to remember this Super Bowl Sunday:

  • If you are drinking use a ride share service like Uber/Lyft, or take public transportation.
  • Keep track of how much alcohol you consume. Your focus will mostly likely be on the game, making it easier to lose track of how much you’ve drank.
  • Remain mindful of distractions. If you’re listening to the game on the radio, talking about the game, or evening thinking about the game, you could become so distracted you’re unable to properly focus on the road (the same is true for those driving or those walking!).

Whether you’re rooting for the Patriots or the Rams we hope you keep these safety tips in mind and have a safe Super Bowl Sunday.

Dear friends and clients,

In furtherance of our firms culture of commitment to always act with compassion, concern and commitment to our clients, community and colleagues, we have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligations while prioritizing health, wellness and safety of all we can. 

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced changes to many lives and businesses in our communities, and around the world. We, much like our neighbors and friends, have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligation to our clients, while also prioritizing the health, wellness and safety of our employees.

Until further notice, our offices will be closed to the public to encourage social distancing and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our team is still hard at work, many from home, and you may still call, email, live chat or video conference us if you or a loved one is seeking legal assistance. As the first law firm to offer our clients secure online access to their case file more than a decade ago, we have always been believers in using technology to make life easier and information more accessible. In these present times it has been a smooth transition for us to continue to offer our clients the same seamless and thorough service that you deserve and are accustomed to.

This pandemic is unlike anything any of us have faced in our lifetimes, and while we can continue to emotionally support one another through it all, staying home and keeping your distance is vital to the health and wellness of our communities. It does not feel good to break routines, cancel events and retreat from our normal, day-to-day socializing, but let us remember that, in times of strife, prior generations were asked to go to war and we are simply being asked to stay home. Your isolation equals more lives saved, and more time for medical providers to prepare for the treatment of patients battling COVID-19.

When the dust settles, we will join together with a greater appreciation for our lives, local businesses, loved ones and health. Until then, we will continue to offer guidance from a safe distance.

Very truly yours,

Andrew G. Finkelstein and the staff of Jacoby & Meyers, LLP
