In celebration of Black History Month, the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) partnered with the National Black Prosecutors Association (NBPA) to showcase Black prosecutors throughout the country in a short video. This video outlines a few of NDAA and NBPA members' commitment to prosecution, what motivates them to what motivates them to serve in that role and the challenges they face as the country reconciles issues of race and its intersection with the criminal justice system, particularly as prosecutors of color. NDAA thanks you for continuing to give a voice to victims and paving the way for young girls and boys that look just like you!
Lyft partnered with the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) to examine trends in impaired driving outcomes following the introduction of Lyft in three communities: Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago, Illinois; and Fort Worth, Texas. Across all three cities, every DUI outcome assessed decreased following the introduction of Lyft. This included arrests, crashes, and fatalities. These DUI outcomes further decreased as Lyft ridesharing became more frequently used in these cities. Results were consistent with a positive effect of ridesharing on DUI outcomes, but the design and analysis did not allow for determining if this relationship was causal. The results provide early support for the safety benefits of ridesharing and should encourage further research in this area.
