Las Vegas Coalition for Zero Fatalities Combats Impaired Fatalities With Up to $10 Off One Lyft Ride This Halloween Weekend
With statewide roadway fatalities up 6% year over year, the coalition is teaming up to eradicate impaired driving fatalities over the long holiday weekend.
In an ongoing commitment to prioritize safe driving practices and eliminate impaired roadway fatalities, the Las Vegas Coalition for Zero Fatalities has pledged $800 toward access to free Lyft rides in Las Vegas over Halloween weekend Oct. 30 – Nov. 1.
“So far this year, Nevada has seen a 22% increase in pedestrian fatalities statewide compared to last year, with impairment and speeding continuing to be the top causes of these deaths. As we head into a historically deadly holiday weekend, the Las Vegas Coalition for Zero Fatalities aims to reduce the number of preventable deaths we see year over year,” said Zero Fatalities Program Manager Andrew Bennett. “We encourage everyone this Halloween weekend to watch out for each other, always drive sober and ride safe.”
Beginning on Nevada Day – Friday, Oct. 30 at 6 p.m., the Las Vegas Coalition for Zero FatalitieNevadaDay2020, supplies last.
