The Victim Services and Victims’ Rights: Elevating Victims’ Voices at a Critical Time Best Practices Guide was developed by the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) Women Prosecutors Section under the leadership of Summer Stephan, District Attorney, San Diego County, Vice President, National District Attorneys Association and Chair, NDAA Women Prosecutors Section.
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.
