ABILENE, Texas - Darah Waldrip from the Texas Department of Transportation visited KTXS on Wednesday and spoke about a new website aimed at combating drunk driving.
The website is called "Sober Rides." Visitors can input their address, and then find safe options for getting home.
There are sections for cab/taxi information, "phone a friend," public transit, Google maps, and even a Facebook option to ask your friends for a ride.
Waldrip stressed the importance of safe driving, especially with Spring Break coming up.
According to TxDOT, in 2011 there were 24,407 alcohol-related traffic crashes in Texas that resulted in 9,166 serious injuries and 1,071 deaths.
