“Never drink and drive” is a phrase that we have all heard throughout our lives and it has been engrained in our brain since before we even got our licenses. This New Year’s Eve is no different then all of the others. It’s always smart to have the number of a friend or family member to reach in an emergency situation. If you plan to stay out late on NYE, try to arrange your plans in advance so you have somewhere to sleep and a way to get home. If you don’t have a designated driver this year, you can still go out and have fun while staying safe using outside sources for designated drivers! Check out our top 3…
Probably the most popular car service around, Uber has been growing since the company was founded in 2009. Once you download the app, you can schedule a ride and the app will show the driver your location. You are given an ETA, as well as an estimated drive time and price quote. After your ride is completed, your credit card will be charged and you will receive an email with your receipt for the service. Let Uber be your designated driver this New Years Eve!
Lyft is a lot like Uber. Another car service app, Lyft will also arrive within minutes of your request for a pickup. This 24-hour service puts each of their drivers through a background test. Like with Uber, payment is processed through the app. If you need a sober ride this NYE, Lyft might be the one for you!
Get a sober ride. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has created a listing of sober/safe ride programs across the country. There are various services available nationwide. Prices will vary, and most services have their own set flat rate.
Stay safe when partying this New Years Eve!
