It seems that it takes New York State forever to get things done. Uber debuted in cities over 5 years ago and New York State just celebrated one year of having Uber.

Suddenly, the DWI's in Erie County are going down, we're sure from the availability of getting a cheap and easy ride home.

Through July 8, 2018: 1,336 drunken driving arrests

2017 through July 8: 1,420 drunken driving arrests

DWI convictions have actually dropped 20% since 2013 as well!

2013: 3,316

2014: 3,160

2015: 2,739

2016: 2,764

2017: 2,653
