The free Uber program that has been so successful in Evesham (Evesham Saving Lives) has expanded to Voorhees. Residents of either town can take a free Uber ride home from any bar in the town to avoid any possibility of driving while intoxicated. The service is provided free of charge between the hours of 9 pm and 2 am, 7 days per week. The towns have already noticed a decrease in drunk driving arrests and accidents, and hope that the programs can make a lasting impact on alcohol-related offenses.
The penalties for drunk driving and other alcohol-related misbehavior that arise from alcohol consumption are too high to not take advantage of this opportunity. Please be safe and not worry over this Holiday season. Get the New Year off to a great start by being smart about alcohol consumption.
