Safe Rides

Safe Rides is an intervention designed to reduce the burden of alcohol-related car crashes and harm in communities. The intervention aims to increase an individual’s intention to find alternative transportation to and from high-risk areas, such as bars, event venues, and others. Through Safe Rides, consumers at high risk of alcohol-impaired driving are offered free round-trip transportation to high-risk areas when consuming alcohol.
