Safe rides for St Patrick’s Day weekend

In 2017 alone nearly 40% of all crash fatalities over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend involved drunk drivers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

North Dakota is listed as the state with the third most alcohol-impaired driving deaths in 2017 per 100,000 people. However, the overall number of fatalities in these crashes has declined in the past 10 years. A study in New York suggests that this may be due in part to ride-sharing apps like Lyft or Uber. One Lyft driver told us, he’s glad to be able to help in making a difference.

“I think it’s a great thing, I definitely know that it’s, like, cut down on drunk driving and stuff, so yeah. It feels good to be able to help out in that way,” says Travis Barnes, Lyft Driver.
