Safe Rides
The Safe Rides program allows local teenagers to prevent driving while under the influence by providing a safe alternative for their peers. Last year over one hundred twenty well-trained teenage volunteers provided their peers with more than nine-hundred fifty safe rides home on Friday and Saturday evenings.

The Safe Rides program has received national recognition for its excellence. Photo Left: Former American Red Cross president, Elizabeth Dole, presents Safe Rides volunteers with the 'Presidents Award for Excellence in Youth Programs.'

Safe Rides operates every Friday and Saturday evening between the hours of 10:00pm and 2:00am. If you need a safe ride home during that time period please call (203) 869-8445.
