Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — In an ongoing effort to encourage safe driving and to eliminate impaired roadway fatalities, the Las Vegas Coalition for Zero Fatalities has pledged $800 towards free Lyft rides in Las Vegas over the Halloween weekend from Oct. 30 to Nov. 1.

Beginning on Nevada Day, Friday, Oct. 30 at 6 p.m., the Las Vegas Coalition for Zero Fatalities, in affiliation with Dignity Health, Zappos, and Distill bar, will offer $10 off one Lyft ride through Sunday, Nov. 1 at 6 a.m.

“So far this year, Nevada has seen a 22% increase in pedestrian fatalities statewide compared to last year, with impairment and speeding continuing to be the top causes of these deaths. As we head into a historically deadly holiday weekend, the Las Vegas Coalition for Zero Fatalities aims to reduce the number of preventable deaths we see year over year,” said Zero Fatalities Program Manager Andrew Bennett.

The limited-time offer can be applied within the Lyft mobile app using the code NevadaDay2020.

“We encourage everyone this Halloween weekend to watch out for each other, always drive sober, and ride safe,” added Bennett.
