Ride sharing reduced US drunk driving deaths by 6 Percent

About one-third of all traffic crash fatalities in the US involve drunk drivers. Ride-sharing can play an important role in reducing these deaths, according to a new study.

Researchers Michael Anderson and Lucas Davis, both from the University of California, Berkeley, found ride-sharing reduces US alcohol-related traffic fatalities by 6.1% and total US traffic fatalities by 4%. They published their findings as a working paper, which means it hasn’t yet been peer-reviewed.
