Budweiser and Lyft reveal plan to combat drunk driving

After a night out, many people do the responsible thing and have a designated sober driver, rather than drive while drunk. However, drunk driving is still a major problem. To address this problem, beermaker Budweiser and the ride-sharing service Lyft have announced an initiative in which they give intoxicated persons rides each weekend for the rest of 2017.

The initiative, titled "Give a Damn. Don't Drive Drunk," will provide people in Florida, eight other states and Washington, D.C., with up to 150,000 round-trip rides. The service will be available on weekends and holidays.

Users will be given a $20 ride credit for a round-trip ride using Lyft at no cost, if the person obtains a ride code on each Thursday from Budweiser's social media sites. These credits can be used from 5:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Unfortunately, even with services such as this one, many people still get behind the wheel after having too much to drink. With their reflexes and decision-making skills hindered by drink, it is all too easy for drunk drivers to cause a drunk driving accident, causing harm to themselves and/or other people on the road.

Under state law, those who have been injured in a car accident caused by another driver's negligence may recover compensation for their damages -- including medical costs, lost wages and more -- through a personal injury lawsuit. Driving while drunk is solid evidence that can show negligence.

Those who have been the victim of a drunk driving accident can speak to an attorney about their legal options.
