EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Logan’s Promise wants to make sure you get home safe this month.
They’re honoring Drunk Driving Victims Remembrance Month. That organization formed following the death of Reitz High School student Logan Brown. He was killed by a wrong-way drunk driver in 2015.
Since then, Logan’s Promise has been helping those in need get a safe ride home to avoid anything like that from happening ever again.
They’ll be doing their safe ride program every weekend this month on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m.
Organizers say you can just use the Lyft code “safemarch2021″ to get up to $25 off of your ride home. It is available for those living in Vanderburgh, Warrick, Posey and Gibson counties.
”I didn’t think it could happen to me, but it can happen. It’s not just a ticket that you pay for,” said Tabitha Devasier.
On September 1, 2018, Devasier’s son, Trevor Watt, and his best friend, James Gasaway, paid the ultimate price for another person’s poor choice. That night changed Devasier’s life forever.
“People die from a horrible choice that could have been prevented. They could have got a ride,” said Devasier. “They could have had a friend picked them up.”
She leaned on Logan’s Promise during the grieving process and court dates that followed. That is why she is now an active member of the organization today. She hopes that Trevor is proud.
“I have really prayed about it hard that Trevor is looking down going, ‘that’s my mom! She never gives up!’ I’m not going to stand still,” shared Devasier.
She hopes the people of Vanderburgh, Posey, Gibson, and Warrick counties will take advantage of the free rides offered by Logan’s Promise.
