MADD, Uber offer free rides on Thanksgiving Eve

Thanksgiving Eve, which has also been called “Blackout Wednesday,” is one of the busiest drinking nights of the year and the beginning of the holiday season, when there is an increase in instances of impaired driving.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Uber are therefore offering free rides on Wednesday night.

All New York State residents and visitors outside of New York City can enter the promo code  SAFERIDENY19 into the Uber app by navigating to the menu, tapping Payment, and then Add Promo.

This will unlock a free ride up to $10 that starts and ends in New York outside of New York City on Thanksgiving Eve.

The free rides are available between 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 27, and 3 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 28.
