Hospital, area eateries join forces to keep roads safe

January 31, 2008
From local reports
Marietta Memorial Hospital’s Addiction and Pain Services is working with 27 Washington and Wood county restaurant and bar owners to keep roads safe this Super Bowl Sunday.

“In the United States, someone dies every 30 minutes in alcohol-related auto accidents,” said Charlie Hasse, director of Behavioral Health Services at Memorial. “And, someone is injured every two minutes. Our goal is to lessen these tragedies and encourage people to think before they drink.”

The Designated Driver campaign is designed to educate the public and encourage people to take a stand against impaired driving. Participating locations will provide free designated nonalcoholic drinks to patrons who announce they are designated drivers during Super Bowl Sunday.

Posters and coasters will be prominent in those locations participating in the event.

Participants include:

¯ In Washington County: American Legion Post 64, Applebee’s, Austyn’s, Double L, The Galley, Harmar Tavern, Holiday Inn, House of Wines, Lafayette Hotel, Levee House, Marietta Brewing Company, Moose Lodge 1823, Norwood Tavern, River City Boathouse, River City Tavern and Grill, Riverside, Spagna’s, Tampico and Town House.

¯ In Wood County: Blennerhassett Hotel, Buffalo Wild Wings, DaVinci’s, JP Henry’s, Moose Lodge 1118, My Way Lounge, Overtime Lounge, Parkersburg Veterans of Foreign Wars and River City Tavern and Grill.
