Safe rides darien



Darien Safe Rides is a program designed to provide a free and confidential ride to any high school student who is from Darien and not in a condition to drive safely or to any student who wants to avoid being a passenger in such a situation. Darien Safe Rides is also a program which holds the potential for changing attitudes about driving while drinking; the student’s concern for each other’s safety leads to greater appreciation of both the risks and responsibilities associated with driving while impaired. Darien Safe Rides operates out of the Depot.


The Safe Rides Student Manual Can be accessed here. It contains the rules for the Safe Rides program. All members of Safe Rides are responsible for knowing and following the rules and guidelines in the manual.

Before any student may drive, their parent/legal guardian must sign and submit the Acknowledgement, Consent & Liability Release Form which is available here.
