Lyft is associated with decreasing impaired driving incidents: Research shows that when Lyft enters a market, ride volumes increase and DUI incidents decrease. 65% of riders use Lyft to find a rideshare driver when they are planning to drink alcohol or use another substance that could impair driving ability.
