For those old enough to remember, Goober Pyle is a fictional character in the American TV sitcom The Andy Griffith Show and its sequel series Mayberry RFD. You might also know the word Goober as the chocolate covered peanuts that are a favorite snack in Movie Theaters. Although the term Goober is used for a kindhearted and rather oblivious goofball, when it comes to driving it can be dangerous.

Mardi Gras season brings great joy and revelry to the New Orleans area. However, feelings of excitement and good cheer can turn sour if locals and visitors choose to consume alcohol or other controlled substances and decide to get behind the wheel.

The best way to enjoy Mardi Gras is to do so responsibly and ensure that you do not mix drinking and driving as part of your festive experience.
