Providing rides home from the bars and preventing alcohol related accidents has been the goal for the SafeRide program for more than three years.

The Department of Transportation's recent study found that the program provided more than sixteen thousand rides in a one-year period. The Eau Claire City County Tavern League President believes the actual number of rides is higher.

The League President says the SafeRide program runs all year round, but is limited to certain taverns.

Currently, there are more than thirty SafeRide programs in the state.
