Uber has had a great side effect, DUI are down about 4 to 5%

A new study says the service is helping save peoples’ lives.

All it takes is a quick click, a few taps and a ride from ‘Uber’ is just a few minutes away. It's so easy, it's the reason a study out of ‘Temple University’ says ‘Uber’ is responsible for the decline in drunk driving deaths across California.

“I think the problem before ‘Uber’ was around was it was very difficult to get a ride, especially at those off times,” says Christopher Ballard, General Manger of ‘Uber San Diego’.

The study looked at alcohol-related driving deaths from 2009 to 2013. In cities with ‘Uber’, DUI death rates fell between 3.6% and 5.6%.
