Ridesharing Drives Decline in Alcohol-Related Motor Vehicle Trauma

11 June 2021

#The introduction of rideshare services in Houston, America, has led to a significant decline in rates of trauma related to motor vehicle crashes (MVCs), along with fewer convictions for driving under the influence (DUIs), according to results from a multicentre cohort study in Texas. “The results from this study highlight the importance of ridesharing services as a potential consumer-driven, innovative solution in reducing the incidence of MVC trauma,” Adil Haider, MD, MPH, Dean of the Medical College at the Aga Khan University (AKU) in Karachi, Pakistan, and deputy editor of JAMA Surgery, and Hamna Shahbaz, MD, of the Dean’s Clinical Research Fellowship Programme at the AKU, said.
