The Las Vegas Coalition for Zero Fatalities is providing up to $20,000 in Lyft ride credits to help keep drunk drivers off the road for Independence Day.

New and existing Lyft users heading out to the Summerlin area can get $5 off two rides from Tuesday, July 3 through Thursday, July 5 with the code "SUMMERLINRIDE."

"Fourth of July is a holiday that brings our nation together, and we want to provide a responsible ride sharing option for the thousands of locals and tourists that celebrate in Summerlin," said Yacob Girma, Lyft Las Vegas general manager. "We can't thank our coalition members enough for their ongoing support and generous contributions."

The initiative to provide Lyft credits to reduce drunk driving began on New Year's Eve weekend. It led to a 15 percent decline in DUI arrests year-over-year, which is the first decrease reported in five years.

Members of the coalition include the City of Las Vegas, Downtown Project, Downtown Summerlin, Entercom Communications, Fremont Street Experience, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Las Vegas Monorail, Nevada Highway Patrol, PT's Entertainment Group, Topgolf Las Vegas, and Zero Fatalities.
