Save Lives, Don’t DUI This Holiday Season with MCAO and Lyft
The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, in partnership with Lyft and Desert Financial, is promoting the “Save Lives, Don’t DUI” campaign from December 1st until New Year’s Day.
“This month-long campaign is designed to get people to think about planning ahead and making sure they have a sober ride to and from their holiday events,” said Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel. “We also want to give them an affordable option to do so.”
Between now and New Year’s Day, first-time users who download the Lyft app can get $5 off their first four rides by entering the promo code “JOY.” Those who already have the Lyft app can enter the code “JOY19” to receive 20% off two rides allowing them to get to and from their holiday festivities safely.
There are consequences to driving under the influence in Arizona. Widely regarded as the strictest DUI laws in the nation, you can land in jail with up to $10,000 in fines for your first offense. In contrast, the Lyft code, can offer many a safe ride home for as low as a $5 to $10 charge.
