There are too many options for safe travels these days. From Uber and Lyft to our county's Dial-A-Ride program, to app-based public transportation such as Eastern Placer's new TART Connect program, or Auburn's new on-demand transportation service – a safe ride home for you and your loved ones is literally a click away.
So share the love by ensuring it is a safe one. Don’t let yourself or someone you love become another DUI statistic. No careless moment is worth a lifetime of regret.
While calling a ride can cost around $60, a DUI in its entirety can cost up to $20,000. This includes:
