Lyft Offering Free Rides At The Beach; Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over


Delaware Office of Highway Safety and Delaware State Police have partnered with Lyft to offer drivers a free ride home from Delaware Beaches over the 4th of July holiday in their Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.

The Delaware Office of Highway Safety has partnered with the Delaware State Police and Lyft to offer free rides home from Delaware Beaches in their Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.

Beginning Wednesday July 3rd at 4pm and running through 2am Sunday July 7th, the Delaware Office of Highway Safety is running a sober ride program which provides SoberLift vouchers good for a ride home (up to $15).

To get your voucher and get a safe ride home, text "SoberLift" to 99000 to get your discount code for use from Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, South Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island.

This program was designed to offer people a safe ride home if they've been drinking. With a number of alcohol related fatal crashes in Delaware around the 4th of July, the organizers hope to reduce those numbers to zero. "We want to be very clear about the consequences of driving while intoxicated", said Christopher Klein of Delaware Office of Highway Safety. "Make no mistake: if you are caught driving while intoxicated, you will be arrested."

An increased presence of law enforcement on the road will be noticeable, so there's really no reason to take the chance. Use the SoberLift program, call an Uber or have a designated driver.
