I think this is a good partnership between the schools and law enforcement. With Uber/Lyft/etc the transportation options available to students who do use alcohol and drugs is greater than ever, they really can avoid this altogether even if they don't avoid the alcohol and drugs.

I hope they also stress the importance of not getting in a vehicle with someone they think is under the influence.
