Detroit-area law firm renews 'Safe Ride Home' initiative


Christensen Law is continuing its “Safe Ride Home” program for people who have had too much to drink on New Year’s Eve.

“Based on the success we had with our ‘Safe Ride Home’ program for Thanksgiving Eve, we wanted to continue the program for New Year’s Eve as a service to the
community,” said Dave Christensen, founder of Christensen Law in Southfield. “We’re proud to say we helped over 125 people return home safely.”

Drinking is often part of New Year’s Eve celebrations, he said, and the law firm wants to help people get home safely to begin the new year.

As a personal injury lawyer, Christensen has seen people suffer as a result of drunk driving and has been involved with organizations such as the Washtenaw Council on Alcoholism, Spectrum Treatment and Prevention Services, and others that deal with alcohol/drug addiction.

Christiansen detailed how the initiative works:
