StreetwiseWhat do you think about ending the Safe Ride program, which provides confidential rides for teens who have been drinking?
Asked on Middlefield Road and Park Boulevard, Palo Alto. Interviews and photographs by Lauren-Marie Sliter.
"I think it's a tragedy. I can't imagine it will be good for the community."
"It's really unfortunate that the program has to be shut down. While I don't condone underage drinking, teenagers do drink and having a safe ride home is incredibly important."
"I think it should stay open. It could save lives."
"I hate to see this program go."
"This program getting cut is devastating because it's putting people's lives in danger."
