Next to Mardi Gras, people consume the most drinks on average during the New Year’s holiday, with an average of 43.5% of the population binge drinking.1
SafeWise wants to help you ring in the New Year with class and grace, so we’re helping you get home safe. We’re giving away $10 Lyft vouchers to the first 100 people who register for our Safe Rides Home campaign.
Even if you don’t qualify for our voucher, you can still save yourself the $6,500 or more you’d spend on a DUI by instead hailing a ride from companies like Lyft, taking public transport, or asking a friend to be the designated driver.2
Our Safe Rides Home campaign promotes alternative forms of transportation, which on nights like New Year’s Eve are more than necessary for anyone having a drink or two. It’s smarter to avoid driving drunk than risk the consequences.
Between Christmas and New Year’s in 2018, there were 285 drunk-driving-related fatalities. And a total of 10,511 people were killed in drunk driving crashes, which accounts for a third of deaths on roads every year.3 These deaths are 100% preventable.
