How is Evesham, N.J., cutting down on its record levels of drunk driving?

Answer: Uber

by News Staff / November 3, 2015

Through partnerships with local businesses, the township of Evesham is funding free Uber rides for people who are too drunk to drive. After high levels of DUI arrest and alcohol-related fatalities, Mayor Randy Brown launched the free Uber ride initiative. In the first 30 days, about 350 people used the service. Brown said they hope to also get taxi services involved, and even spread the initiative across the nation to help make roadways safer.
