12/28/2015 (PRESS RELEASE JET) -- A new mobile app to help people who have been drinking get a safe ride home was introduced today by ArKay Beverages.
The Safer Ride ArKay app, designed to help keep drunk drivers off the roads by allowing them to call ArKay DD center that will send a taxi or a friend and by identifying their location so they can be picked up, was announced today by the ArKay Beverages Inc.
In the event no friend is available to do the rescue ArKay Beverages will pay the cost of the Taxi ride thanks to a trust fund that ArKay is putting in place.
“We’re making progress in the fight against drunk driving by arming people with useful tools, such as our new Safer Ride ArKay app,” David Angel, ArKay VP of sales, said in a statement. “This holiday season, don’t to drink and drive, that is the law.”
Currently, it is against the law in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico to drive a vehicle while legally drunk (with a blood alcohol concentration BAC of .08 or higher). All states also prohibit people under the age of 21 to drink and to drive with any BAC in their system.
