A safe ride is just a stone(r)s throw away!

High Hi, Seattle!

We’re bud-dying ? up again with Lyft to raise awareness about impaired driving and offer smarter choices to get around safely as Hempfest gets underway this weekend.

August 17 (today!) – 19, Lyft is providing $10 off 2 rides to/from the event, with code:

HEMPFEST2018

 

High driving is a no-no!

While it’s legal to get high, it’s not legal to drive high. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, marijuana can slow your reaction time and ability to make decisions, impair coordination, and distort perception. Yep, all critical functions of driving. We just marijuantcha to get home safe. Ok, maybe that one doesn’t quite work. It’s not easy to roll out pot pun after pot pun.

 

When it comes to street safety, the stakes are high. Really high. Seriously. In Seattle, impairment – whether alcohol or drugs – accounts for an average 20% of traffic fatalities. As a reminder, close to 20 people lose their lives in traffic crashes on city streets each year. We’re aiming to get down to zero by the year 2030 (that’s what Vision Zero is all about).

 

Let’s be clear, we’re not pushing folks to get baked. I mean, this is Seattle and a brownie does sound good right about now…C’mon, we’re a government agency. We just want people to make good choices.

Grab the code, get a safe ride.

And through our ongoing Vision Zero safe ride partnership with Lyft, we’re able to offer up said good choices.

So stoners, do your thing, but please stay safe and plan ahead. Dank Thank you!
