Anheuser-Busch battles drunk driving

Don't be too quick to blame beer companies for drunk driving in New Jersey; the reality is that companies like Anheuser-Busch are very much against drunk driving and they do a lot to prevent it. In fact, Anheuser-Busch has publicly stated that they think driving under the influence is 100 percent preventable. Below are a few ways they combat it:

Bud Light Alert Cab

This is a program that connects cab drivers and places that sell beer -- such as bars and restaurants. In some cases, people can ask for a free ride home; in other cases, the fare is simply reduced.

Bud Light Tow to Go

This is a similar program, but it works with tow companies, rather than cab companies. With this program, the tow truck comes and brings both the person and his or her car right to the person's house. The individual just rides along in the tow truck, with the driver. This is helpful because people sometimes think they must drive home if their car is parked in an expensive lot, and it eliminates that issue.

Budweiser Designate a Driver

This is just a designated driver campaign that was started up back in 2012, encouraging people to find a DD before they go out for the night. This same idea is still posted on the company's main website. The campaign is carried out in connection with over 73,000 law enforcement agencies.

No matter how much beer companies do to help, though, they can't eliminate drunk driving entirely, which is why it's important to know your rights if you're injured in a DUI crash.
