As ride-hailing prepares to make its local debut Thursday, Erie County’s top prosecutor said he’s confident the service will help reduce drunken driving.
“We want to see a decrease in the number of DWIs and, more importantly, we want to save lives,” John Flynn told reporters Wednesday. “That’s what we’re here for. That’s what our jobs are for. And hopefully, ride-sharing here in Buffalo and Erie County will do just that.”
