Law firm's program reimburses rides home on Thanksgiving Eve

Christensen Law in Southfield is bringing back its popular “Safe Ride Home” program. Through this drunk driving awareness program, the firm reimburses individuals for rides home with a taxi or ride sharing service on certain holidays like Thanksgiving Eve — a popular night for parties and alcohol use. Founder David Christensen also announced that his firm is extending the program beyond Metro Detroit to Washtenaw, Genesee, Bay and Kent counties.

Both Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard and Genesee County Sheriff Robert J. Pickell have endorsed the program for this Thanksgiving holiday.

Safe Ride Home launched in 2015 and continued through 2016, providing more than 1,000 people with a safe ride on some of the most dangerous holidays of the year, according to Christensen. As a personal injury lawyer, he has seen first-hand how devastating a drunk driving incident can be in the lives of families he has served.
