Safe Uber Rides on New Year’s Eve…On Us!

Sorry, We Are Out Of Uber Vouchers

Due to the popularity of the uber safe rides program we upped our budget from $7,500 to $10,000. That increased budget has now been exhausted as well.  Unfortunately we cannot offer anymore rides but we appreciate your interest in the program.  

We hope you have a safe and happy new year's eve.  Please find a sober driver no matter the occasion.

 

Many people celebrate the holidays with drinks…sometimes many drinks. The activities flow nonstop this time of year, and it’s easy to get swept away in the endless supply of spiked eggnog and craft cocktails. Unfortunately, this increase in seasonal drinking also lends itself to an upsurge in drunk driving fatalities. Don’t drive if you’ve been drinking. Bring a sober driver along or take an Uber or Lift.

One person dies every 39 minutes in a DUI-alcohol-related traffic crash. In 2022, 28% of all traffic fatalities were alcohol-related, according to TxDOT. These avoidable accidents can halt festivities right in their tracks, ruin the lives of victims, and have catastrophic legal repercussions for the driver. 

As the oldest personal injury firm in Austin, Byrd Davis Alden & Henrichson, LLP, has witnessed firsthand the devastating consequences of drunk driving. We are determined to bring change through action and awareness, which is why we have partnered with Uber to help get you and your family home safe on New Year’s Eve.

We have pre-purchased 300 credits worth $25 each on the Uber app for exclusive use on New Year’s Eve to help Austinites get to their destinations safely. There is a one-credit-per-person limit, and the Uber promo code will only work in the Austin area between the hours of 7:00 PM on December 31, 2023 and 4:00 AM on January 1, 2024. The credits are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Take the sober driver pledge and fill in your name/email for your free Uber promo code.
