 Uber and MADD study
, January 2015. We used a difference-in-differences statistical technique to measure whether Uber’s entry into California cities reduced alcohol-related car crashes
, compared to California cities we did not enter into. We found that monthly alcohol-related crashes decreased by 6.5% (or 60 fewer crashes per month) among drivers under 30, following the launch of uberX in California in July 2012. As of October 2015, that means 2,200 crashes had been prevented. This effect has been replicated by researchers at Temple University
, who showed that the effect builds over time as the network matures.
