Designated Driver Programs

Over the past few decades, the problems, risks, and consequences of drinking and driving have become frequently discussed topics in American society. In order to combat drinking and driving, many social programs have been founded, including designated driver programs to provide safe rides home to people who have had too much to drink.

Designated driver and safe ride programs usually encourage people to designate a sober individual to provide safe transportation for those engaged in social drinking. Most programs are designed to help individuals avoid the severe consequences that result from an arrest for driving while intoxicated.

Benefits of Designated Driver Programs

Designated driver programs may be organized by social organizations, government programs, or by individuals. Designated driver programs often help by:

  • Providing safe rides home for intoxicated individuals
  • Promoting responsible social drinking
  • Removing an intoxicated individual from the driver ‘s seat
  • Encouraging carpooling and reducing traffic congestion
  • Emphasizing sobriety behind the wheel
  • Preventing accidents caused by intoxicated drivers
  • Preventing deaths caused by drunk driving accidents
  • Reducing the number of DWI convictions

Safe ride and designated driver programs are often simple to start and often require little funding. By establishing a safe ride program, individuals can have a significant impact on reducing the number of drunk drivers on the road.
