Police, ride share drivers ask people to designate a driver

Local

Party goers, don’t get behind the wheel. 

You have options.

“That was another ride,” says Michael Parker.

Business is starting early for Uber driver Parker.

It is kind of starting to pick up,” he says.

Parker will be out and about tonight it won’t be the most exciting time for him but he will be making money and making sure you have a good, safe time.

“You can have a little more fun if someone is driving you and you don’t have to worry about it,” he explains.

He means, worrying about drinking and driving

“I have seen people who have drank and drive before and seen the bad side of it,” he says.

Between Parker and other ride sharing programs like Lyft, there are rides you can take.

“Call an Uber,” he says. “I will definitely come pick you up. I am pretty sure there are going to be other drivers. I am pretty sure there are other drivers out there that feel the same way.”

Police too are urging safety on a night known for partying.

“We want everyone to have a good night,” says Lt. Joe Kennedy with the Wichita Police Department. “It is just that at the end of the night we want everyone to get home safely.”

So far this month Wichita police have made 80 DUI arrests. That’s 21 more than in December of 2017.

Not a statistic police or Parker want you to be a part of.

“Have a good time and get a lot of people home safe and not have anybody else get injured,” he says.
