The South Carolina Attorney General’s Office is teaming up with Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Uber to create a new initiative aimed at curbing drunk driving.
SC: Smart Choice Partnership will work toward providing the state with safe, reliable rides in order to decrease the amount of drunk drivers. South Carolina has the nation’s 9th highest drunk driving death toll, despite being 24th in population, according to Attorney Gen. Alan Wilson.
Wilson will be joined with S.C. Uber General Manager Michael Black, S.C. MADD Program Director Steven Burritt and Josh Peake, a victim of drunk driving, to announce the partnership on Monday at 2 p.m. on the south steps of the State House.
Wilson said if you cannot attend the announcement in person, you can watch it via Periscope by following Uber South Carolina @Uber_SC.
