Impaired Driving

The new designated driver

In Texas, close to 40 percent of traffic fatalities are alcohol related, and nearly 100,000 DUI arrests were made last year. That’s a problem - and Austin is no exception. With unprecedented access to ridesharing, public transportation, taxis, TNCs like Lyft and Uber, and smart phones, all Austinites should be accountable for our impaired driving problem. Through education on these services and the development of new options, Austinites can improve public safety and begin to tame the social stigma of needing a safe ride home.
