Ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft may already be contributing to safer roadways. Ridesharing services offer affordable, safe transportation that is likely cutting down on drunk driving-related fatalities.
According to an Uber and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) study conducted with individuals under age 30, drunk driving crashes dropped over 6% in markets where Uber operates in California. Moreover, the study revealed that nearly 80% of respondents said friends were likely to take ridesharing services rather than driving home after drinking.
Uber and Lyft take safety seriously; both companies require drivers to go through a complete background check. But if you are wondering what else you should do to ensure the safety of your Uber or Lyft ride this holiday season, follow these important recommendations.
