The Valley’s top prosecutor is touting the success of his office’s partnership with a popular ride share company.
At a press conference Wednesday, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery called Uber a “keep out of jail free app.”
Last holiday season Montgomery formed a partnership with the ride share company to reduce drunk driving incidents. About 1,000 people took advantage of the deal that was being offered at the time.
The partnership returned Wednesday and will last through the St. Patrick’s Day holiday.
“There is no excuse, no excuse whatsoever for someone to drive impaired, and the consequences literally and far too often can be fatal,” Montgomery said.
First time users can enter the promo code ‘shamrock2016’ to get $20 off their first ride. The discount is enough to cover the vast majority of rides in metro Phoenix area.
“For every new customer who takes a ride using the discount, Uber has decided to donate $5 to the Arizona chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving,” he said.
Additionally, current Uber users can enter the promo code ‘luckyyou’ to be entered to win a $50 dollar discount on future rides. Two customers will be selected.
