While we were all ringing in the New Year either at a party, or in the comforts of our own homes, Blac Chyna did something super cool so people wouldn’t drink and drive on New Year’s Eve. According to MADD, every two minutes someone is injured due to drunk driving and we can only presume those numbers go up on New Years.

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian have been in the news ever since they announced they were even a couple. Although we have been bombarded on every social media platform about their ups and downs, we wanted to shine some light on something that deserves serious attention. Although we love ringing in the New Year with champagne and margaritas, it’s important to remember that too much indulging can get dangerous. So we love that Blac Chyna took time to post about using Lyft for the big night out.

If you follow Chyna on Snapchat then you are already aware that she always posts her Lyft codes. But by posting the codes on Instagram, it creates more exposure before a night out.

The U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) reports that 40% of traffic-related deaths during Christmas and New Year’s involve drunk drivers — a 12% increase over the rest of the month of December.

According to the NHTSA, 2,597 people lost their lives due to motor vehicle traffic crashes during December 2010. The NHTSA also found that an average of 36 fatalities occurred each day in the U.S. 2001 and 2005 as a result of crashes involving an alcohol impaired driver. That number increased to 45 per day during the 3-day Christmas period and jumped to 54 per day over New Year’s holiday period.

We love when celebrities use their platforms for a positive message, and this one hopefully reached a lot of  followers.
