DUI during the New Years celebrationThe Phoenix Business Journal reported several revelers utilized Uber to ring in the New Year. In fact, there were 2,554 riders who used the Uber app for multiple stops and split fares. Uber began in the Phoenix area in July.
 

With the harsh penalties for drinking and driving in Phoenix, AZ, by utilizing Uber 2,554 partiers got home safety, and more importantly, they didn’t hurt anyone in the process.

Impaired driving-related crashes

According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control & Prevention) Motor Vehicle Safety report, in 2015 10,625 people died in an alcohol-impaired driving-related accident which is nearly one-third of all traffic-related deaths in the United States.

In 2016 there were over 2,000 drivers arrested in Arizona for a DUI during the holidays which of course could have been avoided if they had contacted Uber, hailed a taxi or designated a driver before the party began.
