Free St. Patrick’s Day Lyft Rides Offered

163

Preparing to combat that time of year when, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, well over a third of all US traffic deaths involve drunk drivers, free St. Patrick’s Day Lyft rides will be offered to deter impaired driving throughout the Washington-metropolitan area beginning Tuesday, March 17. Offered by the Washington Regional Alcohol Program, the St. Patrick’s Day SoberRide program will be in operation from 4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day) until 4 a.m. on Wednesday, March 18. During this time, area residents age 21 and older celebrating with alcohol may download Lyft to their phones, then enter a SoberRide code in the app’s “Promo” section to receive their no cost (up to $15) safe transportation home. WRAP’s St. Patrick’s Day SoberRide promo code will be posted at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17 on SoberRide.com.
