We are delighted to announce a partnership with LYFT. We believe ride sharing is an important and innovative tool that increases the safety of our roads and decreases instances of destructive driving. The growth of ride sharing services in a city significantly reduces fatal alcohol-related auto crashes. (Driving Safety: An Empirical Analysis of Ride sharing's Impact on Drunk Driving and Alcohol Related Crime, Frank Martin-Buck, 2016) The rapid rise of app-based ride sharing in Virginia is one factor in a 22% decline in drunk driving deaths even as total traffic fatalities increased 7%. (Virginia DMV, 2015)
Our partnership with LYFT, will allow us to expand our victim program, to reach victims throughout the U.S., allowing us to transport victims of destructive driving crimes, to critical Doctor's appointments, grocery store trips, school and virtually any other place a victim would otherwise not be able to reach, due to their vehicle being damaged, due to being a victim of a destructive driving crash, until which time their case is adjudicated.
Due to our partnership with the ride sharing service we are now reaching and serving victims in 43 states and over 400 cities. Click on our Victims section to learn more.
Teens against drunk driving
What we can do now:
Donate: Do you have a running vehicle that is no longer needed? I.E. Grandparent can't drive any longer. College grad earned a new car. You deserve a new car. Please donate it to us, and we will facilitate it to a current or future victim.

Since 2003, no one used donations as responsibly as we have.

Legislation: AUADD collaborates at the national and state levels, through strategic advocacy actions, to ensure government policy supports legislation that would ensure safe roads. Advocacy actions may include public letters of support, statements, op-eds, making phone calls, in-person testimony, or in person meetings with legislators and influencers. Drop us a note with your info for our newsletter, so we can call on you for support, when there is a call to action!
