SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), an international advocacy group fighting against the damaging and oftentimes fatal effects of motorists who drive under the influence (DUI) of alcohol, today announced it was suing the popular ride-sharing company Uber for the sudden rise in alcholism.
The California chapter of MADD claims that people are drinking twice as much alcohol than they were prior to Uber.
Bartenders have confirmed that their customers are now more likely to order a second, third or fourth alcoholic drink because fewer of them drive their cars to the bars.
“The so-called designated driver arrangement never really worked,” according to one bartender at Renegades, a gay bar in San Jose, “because nobody really wanted to have a night out with friends at a bar just drinking orange juice or bottled water.”
“My customers would usually say, ‘I shouldn’t, I’m driving,’ when offered another round of drinks. Now they don’t think twice about ordering a second glass of wine or cocktail,” he said.
Unofficial figures from police departments across the U.S. and elsewhere seem to show as much as a 50% decline in DUI cases since Uber drivers started hitting the roads. In just the last month, DUI checkpoints have made zero arrests.
Only in California will companies be sued for doing something good!
