Over the last twenty-two years, thousands upon thousands of people have taken advantage of Schimmerling's 'Safe Night' Program and in turn, have not only ensured that they arrived home safely, but that our community was kept safe with fewer drunk drivers on the roads.

New this year, anyone wishing to take advantage of the Safe Night Program will need to use the Lyft app and enter to code, "SafeNight2020." By using the "SafeNight20" code, users will receive a  free or discounted Lyft rides (up to $15) from 12:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. on New Year's Day. Lyft will charge the ride to Shimmerling's office.
