Lorain County Prosecutor's Office Announces its new Arrive Alive Program

For Immediate Release: March 5, 2019 

Arrive Alive

Lorain County Prosecutor’s Office announce its new Arrive Alive program for this upcoming St. Patrick’s Day

Lorain County, Ohio - - The Lorain County Prosecutor’s Office is launching a new anti-drunk driving safe ride service called Arrive Alive this upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday weekend. The Arrive Alive model has already proven effective in Summit County by offering transportation alternatives to impaired drivers to keep them off the roads over the holidays.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2017 there were 10,874 people killed in drunk driving crashes involving a driver with a blood alcohol concentration above legal limits.

Each year, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the deadliest holidays for drunk driving related crashes. Eighty percent of all drunk driving deaths on St. Patrick’s Day involve drivers whose blood alcohol concentration is over twice the legal limit. 

This holiday, the Lorain County Prosecutor’s Office is determined to help keep our roads safe. 

Between noon on Saturday, March 16th, 2019, and 3 a.m. on Monday, March 18th, 2019, the Lorain County Prosecutor’s Office will be offering a new service where it provides residents free rides home within Lorain County (up to sixty dollars). The rides must begin and end in Lorain County.

Residents can call 800-461-9357 and receive a free cab ride home if they mention ARRIVE ALIVE or Lorain Co. Prosecutors.

Alternatively, residents can download the LYFT ridesharing application on their smart phones and use the code LCPOUT to receive a free ride home.

This St. Patrick’s Day, the Lorain County Prosecutor’s Office urges you to celebrate responsibly!
