“Holiday events coincide with an increase in alcohol-related crashes, but the danger has gone up significantly over the past year,” said Mike Sandoval, Transportation Secretary. “Drunk and drug-impaired driving increased during the pandemic and as parties and gatherings resume, there are even more opportunities for impaired driving this holiday season. There is no excuse for driving under the influence. Get a safe ride home.”

Users will be able to use a $15 Uber credit that does not include tips with the ride code ENDWI2021. Rides will be offered anywhere in New Mexico wherever Uber is available from Tuesday, November 23, 2021, through Friday, January 3, 2022, focusing on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve holidays.
