SaferRide App

One death every 52 minutes.

That’s how frequently someone dies in crashes involving a drunk driver in the U.S.   The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) offers a mobile app—called SaferRide—to save more lives.

Simply put, SaferRide helps people who have been drinking to get a safe ride home.

The app helps keep drunk drivers off the road by allowing users to call a taxi or a pre-programmed friend, and also helps easily identify the user’s current location. The app has a very streamlined function, and its interface is purposefully simple. The app only has three large buttons on the home screen: “Get Taxi,” “Call Friend,” and “Where Am I?”

There’s never any excuse to drive after drinking, and now it’s never been easier to help end drunk driving. Use NHTSA’s SaferRide app to get home safely.

The app is available on Google Play for Android devices, and Apple’s iTunes for iOS devices.
