After the clock strikes midnight and people head home from various New Year’s Eve celebrations, safety on the roads can be a concern.
Paso Robles Interim Fire Marshall Paul Patti shares alternative ways of getting home without driving your vehicle.
“The ride-share services, Uber, Lyft. Paso Robles has their own service called Fetch. It’s a taxi service. There’s also just leaving your car there, getting a ride home with friends. Driving your car after drinking is never a good idea," he said.
Recent findings published in the Journal of the American Medical Association show a direct correlation between a decrease in convictions for impaired driving and ride-share volume. The study also shows larger ride-share volume is associated with a lower number of motor vehicle-associated traumas.
