Free Safe Rides To be Provided To Prevent Drunk Driving

Free safe rides will be offered to would-be drunk drivers throughout the Washington metropolitan area by a local nonprofit organization during the winter holidays beginning Dec. 20. The 2019 Holiday SoberRide program will be in operation nightly, 10 p.m. until 4 a.m. from Dec. 20, 2019, to Jan. 1, 2020. The program is offered by the nonprofit Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP). It is intended as a way to keep local roads safe from impaired drivers during this traditionally high-risk holiday.

According to the Alexandria Gazette, “Each evening, during this six-hour period, area residents age 21 and older celebrating with alcohol may download Lyft to their phones, then enter a SoberRide code in the app’s “Promo” section to receive their no cost (up to $15) safe transportation home. A separate Holiday SoberRide promo code will be posted at 9 pm on December 20, 27 and 31 on www.SoberRide.com.

Last December, nearly 2,000 (1,988) people in the area used WRAP’s Holiday SoberRide program rather than possibly driving home impaired. The charity also offers its SoberRide program on St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, Independence Day and Halloween.”

Steve Taylor, Regional Director, Lyft Washington, D.C. said, “Lyft is proud of the role ridesharing has played in reducing impaired driving across the nation. Here in the DC area, partnering with the Washington Regional Alcohol Program allows us to take our commitment to provide reliable, convenient, and responsible transportation a step further, particularly during times of the year when people are out celebrating and in need of a ride home.”
