heading divider

UPDATE October 21, 2021

As we are still in the midst of the pandemic and while cases continue to rise, we are exercising continued caution about social distancing, large events and close gatherings, and are not offering our Safe Ride Home program this year. We’re really hoping we can bring back the program next year, and that everyone remains safe and healthy throughout the holidays.


UPDATE November 18, 2020

In alignment with the new statewide guidance for Coronavirus issued this week, Christensen Law will not be offering our SAFE RIDE HOME program this year. We want to ensure everyone stays SAFE AT HOME this year, so we can all enjoy holidays together in the months and years to come. As an alternative, check out our SAFE AT HOME Holiday Tree Giveaway.

The firm will continue to work remotely; we’re conducting business as usual, albeit virtually. As ever, we remain fully available to speak with our clients and those who need help, at any time. Please reach out if you need assistance.

During these challenging times, we hope everyone will practice social distancing, wash your hands, and most importantly, wear a mask. And, as per the guidance, stay safe at home this holiday season.

Think smart this Thanksgiving Eve and take advantage of Christensen Law’s Safe Ride Home program.

Since 2015, the Southfield personal injury firm has worked to reduce the number of Thanksgiving drunk driving accidents by reimbursing people in the Detroit metro area who use rideshare services and taxis to get home after drinking.

The program was launched in 2015 and has rewarded thousands of individuals for making the right choice and not getting behind the wheel while intoxicated.

What Is the Safe Ride Home Program?

The evening before Thanksgiving, also known as “Blackout Wednesday,” is one of the most dangerous driving nights of the year. At Christensen Law, our lawyers work to ensure that people don’t drive drunk by offering to pay for their cab, Lyft, or Uber.

It’s easy to participate. If you’ve been drinking on Thanksgiving Eve, just call a taxi or rideshare service to drive you home. Pay for the ride and keep your receipt. The next day, simply complete the reimbursement form and upload photos of your receipt and driver’s license to receive a payment of up to $25.

Looking to submit your reimbursement request?


  • You must be at least 21 years old. Photo ID will be required.
  • Your one-way ride home needs to be within Macomb, Wayne, Washtenaw, Oakland, Bay, Kent or Genesee counties.
  • The program begins at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, 2020 and runs through Thursday, November 26, 2020, until 4 a.m.
  • You must choose a ride provider that is licensed, such as Lyft, Uber, or a licensed taxicab company.
  • The maximum reimbursement allowable is $25. This cannot be combined with any other offer.
  • David Christensen Law must receive your receipts by midnight on Saturday, November 28, 2020, for you to be eligible for reimbursement.
  • If your submission meets the requirements of the program, we will mail a check to the address you provided by December 30, 2020.
