ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — During the Big Game weekend, many New Yorkers are planning to go to watch parties and bars to celebrate, with many driving to get to those places.
According to a recent survey from Statistica, 41% of Americans plan to serve or drink beer during the Big Game on Sunday, Feb. 11, even though some need to drive home afterward. That’s why a local law firm is offering an incentive for those drinking on Sunday.
Harding Mazzotti, LLP, a local legal practice with a strong focus on personal injury, negligence, and wrongful death cases, is offering 1,000 Uber vouchers to celebrate the Big Game responsibly in Albany, Syracuse, Utica, and Plattsburgh.
On the day of the Big Game, the law firm of Harding Mazzotti is providing $20 vouchers for Uber rides, available on a first-come, first-served basis.
“This is a time to root for your favorite team and have a good time with loved ones,” stated Paul Harding, managing partner at Harding Mazzotti. “By providing these vouchers, we hope to encourage safe transportation choices and prevent drunk driving accidents, whether you are coming home from a friend’s house or a bar.”
The law firm hopes this will curb drinking and driving and ensure New Yorkers can enjoy a festive and worry-free night by Ubering instead of driving.
“While we hope you have a great time watching the Big Game, remember to always prioritize safety,” added Harding. “If you’ve been drinking, use a designated driver, call a cab, or take advantage of our Uber voucher program. Make sure the night ends on a happy note.”
The Uber voucher program will run on gameday from 6 p.m. to midnight. Interested New Yorkers can visit any of the Harding Mazzotti social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or LinkedIn) on Feb. 11 to claim their voucher.
