SafeWise wants you to enjoy this New Year's safely. That’s why we’re sponsoring $1,000 in Lyft rides to help you get home in one piece. To make the biggest impact on road safety this New Year's Eve, we’re focusing our Safe Rides Home campaign on the states with the highest number of impaired driving deaths per capita.¹

“Unfortunately, many states see an uptick in the number of alcohol-related crashes over holidays like New Year's. As a member of the Road to Zero coalition, we hope this campaign will go beyond free rides to inspire more Americans to get a safe, sober ride home after their holiday festivities."

—SafeWise Site Manager, Katherine Torres

States with the Most Impaired Driving Deaths

Using the most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, we’ve identified the states with the most deaths per capita due to impaired driving.

If you live in one of these states, we’ve got $10 Lyft gift cards for the first 100 people who apply for a Safe Ride Home this New Year's Eve:

  • Montana
  • Wyoming
  • South Carolina
  • Mississippi
  • New Mexico
  • South Dakota
  • Alabama
  • Texas
  • Louisiana
  • Arkansas

If you’re one of the first 100 applicants, you’ll receive an email on the morning of December 31st, with a $10 Lyft gift card to help you get a safe, sober ride home after your New Year's celebrations.

Recent studies indicate that both DUI arrests and drunk-driving crashes decline when people use ride-share services like Lyft and Uber. Be part of the solution, and apply for a Safe Ride Home today.
