LAS CRUCES, N.M. – This morning, District Attorney Mark D’Antonio announced a partnership with the ridesharing service Uber to promote a safe alternative to drinking and driving.
As part of the partnership, Uber will offer new users a $15 credit and existing users a chance to win $100 in free transportation.
D’Antonio said, “I am proud to partner with Uber and highlight the dangers of drinking and driving. We always make it a point to curb drunk driving during the holidays but it’s a year round problem, especially in our state.”
New users can access the free ride credit by downloading the Uber app and entering the promo code DANTONIO. Meanwhile, existing users can qualify to win $100 in free transportation by entering the promo code JUSTICEMATTERS.
“We are so pleased to partner with the Doña Ana DA’s office to offer this safe and affordable transportation alternative for local residents,” said Steve Thompson, General Manager of Uber New Mexico. “We encourage people to take advantage of this campaign by making the smart choice not to drink and drive.”
For every new user who signs up using the promo codes, Uber will donate $5 to the Shattered Lives campaign, a local anti-DWI program focused on educating students about the dangers of drinking and driving.
“We are very excited and extremely honored to be included in this partnership,” said program coordinator and Doña Ana County Teen Court Executive Director Antonia Hernandez. “The donations received will benefit youth throughout our county. Together we can help bring awareness about the serious consequences of drinking and driving.”
