(North Dakota)-- ND Sober Ride, a Vision Zero program to remove impaired drivers from North Dakota roads, will offer discounted Lyft rides just in time for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. Codes will be available from Dec. 20 to Jan. 2, 2022, or while codes last. Use code “VZWINTER1” to get $10 off your ride, where Lyft is available.
Discounted rides are made possible through grant funds from AAA – The Auto Club Group of North Dakota. Lyft codes are unique to each holiday or event and a user may only use a code once per time period. Codes can be found on the Vision Zero website. Additionally, AAA is offering Tow to Go from 6 p.m. Dec. 24 to 6 a.m. Jan. 3, 2022 in an effort to keep impaired drivers off the road. Tow to Go provides a tow truck to transport the would-be impaired driver and their vehicle to a safe place within a 10-mile radius. Utilize Tow to Go by calling 855-286-9246.
Approximately 1 in 7 (14%) adult arrests in North Dakota in 2020 were for driving under the influence (DUI), with alcohol being a factor in about 41% of fatal crashes in North Dakota annually. Many lives would be saved in North Dakota each year if every driver consistently makes the choice to always drive sober, designate a sober driver or use a ride-hailing service.
