“Help me to make sure that this Thanksgiving there are no alcohol-related traffic deaths in Montgomery County,” said Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. “It’s never been easier to make the smart decision — have a sober designated driver or use ArriveSafe and get a free Uber ride home safely.”
By switching to the QR code, Heck said it will help cut down on wait times and make it easier for people to participate in the program. The QR code is on flyers outside different bars and restaurants in the county as well as on the prosecutor’s office’s website and Facebook page.
“We’ve seen the results of what happens when people drink and drive — not only to themselves about being arrested, about the expense involved — but also how it injuries and many times kills other people,” Heck said.
The ArriveSafe program provided nearly 500 free rides over the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s holidays last year, Heck said.
“Please use that Uber QR code, scan it and get home safely,” he said.
