If you are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Columbia, you’ll have a free ride, courtesy of SafeWise and Lyft.
SafeWise announces the SafeWise for safe rides Home on St. Patrick’s Day campaign which will run from March 11 to March 15, 2019.
This campaign will provide $1,000 in Lyft codes to residents in the states with the five highest rates of impaired driving deaths per capita. These states include Wyoming, South Carolina, North Dakota, New Mexico, and Alabama.
“Unfortunately, many states see an uptick in the number of alcohol-related crashes over major holidays like St. Patrick’s Day,” SafeWise president Suzi Brzezinski said.”As a member of the Road to Zero coalition, SafeWise is committed to doing our part to make the nation’s roadways safer. That’s why we hope this campaign will go beyond free rides to inspire more Americans to get a safe, sober ride home after their holiday festivities.”
The first 100 individuals who apply from these states will receive a $10 Lyft credit via email the morning of March 15. They will be free to use this credit at their discretion and are encouraged to use it to get home safely after St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.
