Moses and Rooth Offering a Free Ride on Memorial Day Weekend to Curb Drunk Driving
ORLANDO, Fla., May 23, 2023 (Newswire.com) - In an effort to reduce the amount of drunk driving during the upcoming holiday, the law firm of Moses and Rooth is offering a free ride in Florida over Memorial Day weekend. This campaign not only helps keep the community safe from drunk driving, but also provides a safe alternative to get home for those who are celebrating.
Memorial Day Crash Statistics
According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Memorial Day is one of the deadliest holidays when it comes to car accidents. In 2021, there were 42 crashes in Florida over Memorial Day weekend that resulted in a fatality. More than 50% of those crashes also involved a drunk driver. In comparison, on most regular days, the National Safety Council estimates that around 30% of crashes involve a drunk driver.
Over the past decade, the statistics haven't looked much better. Since 2011, Florida has had the third-highest number of Memorial Day traffic deaths, right behind California and Texas. A majority of these accidents happen between noon and 2:00 AM, making the risk even greater for those who celebrate in the evening. Based on this data, Florida is perhaps one of the most dangerous states to celebrate Memorial Day.
How the Campaign Works
Qualifying for the free ride on Memorial Day weekend is simple. All applicants need to do is contact a rideshare or taxi to take them home if they have been drinking or consuming another substance. Afterward, applicants can submit a copy of their receipt and their PayPal email to Moses and Rooth for reimbursement at this address:
Attn: Sober Rides
