SDOT, UBER and MADD Partner for Safe Transportation Choices

SDOT announced a partnership last week with technology company Uber and MADD to provide discounted rides on St. Patrick’s Day, and during special events throughout 2016 to deter impaired driving.

Here is our latest Blog Video featuring Jim Curtin, SDOT Traffic Safety Coordinator talking about safe transportation choices and the ease of using rideshare providers.


Seattle is consistently recognized as one of the safest cities in the country. Over the past decade, we’ve seen a 30 percent decline in traffic fatalities, even as our population grows.

This partnership is part of our Vision Zero plan to end traffic deaths and serious injuries on Seattle’s streets by 2030.

Death and injury on our streets is preventable. For the most part, these aren’t “accidents.” Collisions are often the result of unforgiving roadway designs and poor behaviors, like choosing to drink and drive.
