The Feb. 1 article DUI arrests plummet doesn’t give enough credit to Uber and Lyft. My children are 20-somethings who party with friends. I used to worry about their safety. No more. They don’t drink and drive. There’s no excuse to do so when a reasonably priced ride is available by touching their phone.
They know people who were caught before Uber and see how a DUI has ruined the lives of good people who made stupid decisions. There is no one reason for the drop, but if you count each after-midnight Uber or Lyft ride as a potential DUI that is now off the road, my guess is that you can explain 90 percent or more of the difference.
