In North Carolina, drinking and driving is a serious problem. In 2015, nearly 1,400 people died as a result of DWI crashes. If we can lessen the impact in any way, then we feel it is our duty. That’s why Tarlton & Polk is introducing “Safe and Sober Rides for the Holidays.”

How Does the Program Work

Participation is simple. All you have to do is call a taxi, Uber, or Lyft anywhere in North Carolina. Then, come back to this page and submit a screenshot of your receipt and a picture of your driver’s license. After that, we’ll send you money for your ride.
