COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - With the holiday season underway, South Carolina’s top prosecutor is holding a news conference to discuss a new partnership he hopes will cut down on drunken driving crashes and fatalities.

Attorney Alan Wilson joins representatives of Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Uber Technologies on Monday at the Statehouse in Columbia to discuss the new effort.

Wilson’s office says the goal of SC: Smart Choice is to help ensure that people always have a safe, reliable ride to get them home if they have been out drinking.

Wilson’s office says South Carolina has the nation’s 9th-highest drunken driving death rate.
