Uber partners with Montgomery County to prevent drunk driving

CONROE, Texas (KTRK) -- As you drive through Montgomery County this Memorial Day weekend, you'll notice a lot of officers patrolling the streets.

This weekend has been designated a No Refusal weekend, which means that law enforcement officers are prepared to obtain warrants to test blood alcohol levels even if suspected drunk drivers refuse a breathalyzer test.

To prevent drunk driving, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office has teamed up with Uber. First-time riders can receive a $15 discount with the code 'MoCoSafe.'

Deputies will also patrol Lake Conroe for boaters who appear to be under the influence.
