The Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) is bringing back its SoberRide program this weekend to offer a safe alternative to drinking and driving.
The Halloween SoberRide will be operational from 10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30, to 4 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 31. During this time, any area resident 21 or older can use the SoberRide code in the “promo” section of the app and get a no-cost trip of up to $15 to get home. The code will be posted at 7 p.m. on the SoberRide website.
“Well over one-third (41%) of all U.S. traffic fatalities during Halloween from 2015 to 2019 involved drunk drivers according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,” said Kurt Erickson, WRAP’s President, in a press release.
The press release noted that the program is available in D.C., Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland, and Arlinton, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William Counties in Virginia. A representative of the company told ALXnow that it’s also available in Alexandria.
The program wasn’t running last year due to COVID-19, but in 2019 the release said 1,122 people in the D.C.-area used SoberRide. The program is also available on St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, Independence Day and the winter holidays.
