Holidays always seem to entail family gatherings, work parties and other special festivities. More often than not, those festivities will include a few alcoholic drinks.
No matter how confident you may feel behind the wheel, the risk just isn’t worth it. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the average drunk driver has driven drunk 80 times before their first arrest. Studies show the number of alcohol-related crashes increase around different holidays.
Don’t be a danger to yourself, or to others on the road. Plan ahead and choose the best sober ride service available to you. Here is a list of sober ride services available nationwide to get you home safely:
SafeRide is a free mobile app that can be downloaded through the App Store and Google Play. It was created by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to be an easy-to-use app with three simple choices – find a taxi, call a friend, or show you where you are on a map.
Lyft is a free mobile app available in the App Store, on Google Play, in the Microsoft Store, and in the Amazon App Store. Lyft is a ride share service which is typically more affordable than a taxi. Prices vary based on location and distance.
