Moses and Rooth Launches Rideshare Reimbursement Initiative on Memorial Day to Prevent Drunk Driving

Free Sober Rides in Orlando

In an effort to curb drunk driving during the Memorial Day holiday, the law firm of Moses and Rooth is offering free rides in Florida throughout the Memorial Day weekend. This initiative aims to enhance community safety by providing a reliable transportation alternative for those participating in Memorial Day festivities.

Memorial Day Crash Statistics

According to recent statistics released by the National Safety Council (NSC), an estimated 469 traffic fatalities occurred during the Memorial Day holiday period last year. In 2021, alcohol-impaired drivers were involved in 40% of all traffic fatalities during the Memorial Day holiday. To combat this issue, Moses & Rooth's Memorial Day Rideshare Reimbursement Program is designed to encourage safer choices and promote community safety during this holiday period.

In 2020, Florida was the third highest state for fatal crashes during Memorial Day weekend, seeing a 12% rise in national traffic deaths compared to non-holiday weekends.

How the Campaign Works

Qualifying for a free ride on Memorial Day weekend is straightforward. All applicants need to do is contact rideshare or taxi to take them home if they've been drinking or using another substance. Afterward, applicants can submit a copy of their receipt and their PayPal email to Moses and Rooth for reimbursement at the following address:

Attn: Sober Rides
115 Granada Court
Orlando, FL 32803

The ride must be taken within Florida between May 24, 2024, and May 27, 2024, to qualify. Applicants should also be aware of the following rules and regulations for the program:

  • Valid for a single one-way ride to a safe destination.
  • Applicants must be 21 years of age or older.
  • One reimbursement per household.
  • Reimbursement is limited to $20, including a 10% tip.
