Consider these Smart Phone Apps Before Going Out Tonight and DrivingMay 30, 2014 -- Published by Pat Hanavan
It is a simple request to everyone who reads this – please do not drink and drive. We are all very aware of the many dangers brought on by drinking and driving yet many still make the irresponsible decision to get behind the wheel when they know they should not.
It is time to take advantage and embrace the future. You have no excuse, never before have these options been readily available for you to take advantage of. Hoping to hail a taxi or finding a last minute hotel room are now a thing of the past. If you need a ride, you can easily get a ride and all you need is your phone.
The Uber app connects you with a driver at the tap of a button. When you request a ride, they’ll find a driver and let you track their location on the map.
Lyft offers affordable rides whenever you need one. Request a ride with the tap of a button, and get picked up by a driver within minutes.
The new Sidecar allows riders to choose the vehicle, the driver and the price, tailoring every ride for any occasion.
Share rides with friendly people.
(Los Angeles Residents) Driving Alliance is a non-profit, tax-exempt public charitable group that aims at reducing the amount of drunk drivers by providing a FREE designated ride, thus encouraging individuals not to drink and drive, and in turn reducing the amount of DUI and DUI related fatalities.
Most major cities have a local program similar to the DrivingAlliance.org. Take a minute, give your city a Google, and properly prepare for when you go out for a few cocktails.
