Omaha law firms offer free rides to prevent drunk driving

OMAHA, Nebraska (Nebraska). There are quite a few options for those who drink this St. Patrick’s Day to stay off the roads.

Rideshare apps, public transportation, or a designated driver are three easy ways to avoid drunk driving, but at least two law firms in Omaha provide another way to get people home safely after a night out at the bar.

Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf, & Lathrop and the Petersen Criminal Protection Act offer free rides on St. Patrick’s Day to get people home safely.

According to the firm’s website, in 1990 Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf, and Lathrop founded SAFE RIDE HOME, an initiative that pays fares for Nebraska residents so they can avoid drunk driving. The firm claims to have provided more than 65,000 rides since the launch of the program.

Rides are offered in Douglas and Sarpy Counties by Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf, and Lathrop on St. Patrick’s Day from 12:00 pm to 02:00 am March 18. Members can fill out a form on the firm’s website to receive an Uber voucher via email. them, or they can use zTrip and call (402) 292-2222, talk to a dispatcher and explain that they want to use the SAFE RIDE HOME program.

The Petersen Criminal Protection Act offers free rides for sober people not only on St. Patrick’s Day, but on other holidays as well. They offer free rides also on Halloween, Thanksgiving, and New Year’s Eve and Day.

Drivers in Omaha can get a refund of up to $30 for an Uber ride by submitting a receipt and other information to Petersen’s law office.

Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf and Lathrop have also expanded this idea in partnership with the Women’s Development Center and provide safe travel for victims of domestic violence.
