WOODBURY -

Uber has teamed up with Mothers Against Drunk Driving to offer free rides on Thanksgiving eve.

All Long Island residents can enter the promo code "Safe Ride LI" on Wednesday night.

The code will unlock two free rides, worth up to $15 each, between 9 p.m. Wednesday and 3 a.m. Thursday.

Thanksgiving Eve is said to be one of the busiest drinking days of the year, often resulting in a spike in drunken driving.
