You may have seen this article last week –

NEW JERSEY CITY OF EVESHAM TO USE UBER TO CURB DRUNK DRIVING

And it’s organized but not funded by the city:

Funded entirely by local nonprofits and businesses, Evesham clearly embodies the “love thy neighbor” ideal, and so far, things are looking up.

Short term, average DUIs were down from 25 to 8 in September.

I’ll keep watching this one. It will be interesting to see if it’s sustainable and what kind of impact it has long term. Love to see local people getting creative with solutions.
