Drivers should choose carefully over Fourth of July

With the Fourth of July holiday just around the corner, New Jersey residents are likely putting the finishing touches on their holiday weekend plans. Whether staying close to home or travelling away over the long weekend, it might be wise for those plans to include options on how to avoid driving after consuming alcohol. A single drunk driving arrest can wreck havoc on a driver's life even if a conviction is not ultimately achieved in the case.

Since Uber launched its ridesharing services, including in 2011 in parts of New York City, many studies have tried to ascertain if using such a service may have actually been helpful to people. According to The New York Times, one set of research from Seattle focused specifically on drunk driving arrests and concluded that the number of people charged with driving under the influence did in fact lower once Uber came to town.

Other studies have looked at the potential impact of ridesharing services on motor vehicle accidents that may have involved alcohol. Several different sets of research have concluded that this alternative means of transportation has in fact reduced the number of alcohol-related crashes in locations where they are available when compared to locations where such services are not available.

The U.S. Department of Transportation routinely makes a strong effort to highlight additional enforcement and public awareness campaigns surrounding drinking and driving leading up to key holidays including the Fourth of July. They even provide ready-made marketing materials for use by police departments, local agencies and more.
