Just in time for the season of celebrating, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration released a new phone app for both Android and iOS called SaferRide. The goal is to help you get home if you manage to get yourself a little tipsy while celebrating. I tried it out and it worked pretty good. I tried “Get Taxi” and it showed me a list of taxis including Uber that I could use to get myself home. “Call Friend” got me to my contacts list. And “Where Am I?” got me to a Google map.
Here is what it looks like:
Have a wonderful holiday season with friends and family. Take time to plan ahead on how you’ll get home after enjoying some holiday spirit-have a designated driver or use a taxi. We will be working but we prefer not to see you in an embarrassing and expensive holiday arrest situation or worse–to call an ambulance for you after to have a serious crash.
