If You’re Drunk In New Jersey, Uber Will Help.

BEACON TRANSCRIPT – A small town in the state will assure that if you’re drunk in New Jersey, Uber will help you getting home safely, without harming yourself or anyone else. If Evesham Township residents find themselves at one of 19 bars and restaurants in the area, they can request a free ride from either of the two services.

The Uber ride program is free and is funded from private donations. “We’re dealing with people who might’ve had too much to drink, so we needed to make it so easy for them to open their iPhone and push a button,” Randy Brown, Evensham Mayor, declared. Its proposition is that it deploys two people when you request a ride home: one to drive you home in your own car, and another to pick up the driver once you arrive home. A post from the Evesham Township Police Department noted that funding for the program came from volunteer community benefactors—local non-profits and businesses and the like. The cooperation between the Town Hall and the mobile apps continues a pilot program that began in Sept. 2015, when the town buses started offering free rides to individuals who were in an inappropriate driving state. Ana Mahony, general manager for Uber New Jersey, pointed out that Mothers Against Drunk Driving organization played a key role in the partnership with Mayor Brown.
