According to the latest stats from the AZ Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, in 2015 alone, there have already been 25,000 DUI arrests in the state of Arizona

Seven Thousand of those arrests were made for extreme DUI’s.  For someone to qualify for an extreme DUI, their BAC must be more than .15

In AZ, it is not legal for anyone to operate a car if they have an alcohol concentration of .08 and up within two hours of driving or being in actual physical command over the car, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, many Arizona residents are gearing up for a weekend of get-togethers and drinking alcohol.

Fortunately for these people, there are several transportation options they can use to avoid being added to the list of DUI statistics that seem to continue to grow year after year.

Here is a small list of options for you and your friends if you are planning to party this year on New Years..

1.  UBER

Uber has teamed up with the Pima County Attorney’s Office to assist in reducing DUIs.  1ST timers can use the promo code FREETRIP for a free first ride up to $20. For every 1st ride, Uber will be donatating $5 to the Arizona Chapter of MADD.  

2.  LYFT

Lyft is another ride-sharing service  that will be partnering with MADD.

For everyone who pledges to help keep drunk drivers off the road, Lyft will donate $1 to MADD

 3.  TIPSY TOW

AAA Arizona is offering its “Tipsy Tow” services for New Year’s Eve from 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 31 through 6 a.m. Friday, Jan. 1.

Simply call 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357) between the 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. deadline; state that a “tipsy tow” is needed, then provide the driver’s name, home address, phone number and vehicle/driver location.

4.  PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

5.  The Good Old School TAXI CAB will never cease to fail you.  They are just a call or text away.

6.  Designate a SOBER DRIVER.  YES. THEY EXIST.  Hey, we all have that someone in our group that just doesn’t drink.. use that friend to your advantage this New Years, and then thank them for keeping you safe.

No matter what you decide to do this New Year’s Eve, AGD Auto Glass & Tint Co wishes you a happy and safe New Year.

See you in 2016!!
