CAR­POOL

Family Circle - - ON DUTY - @tamu­car­pool.

This life­sav­ing group got its start with a mov­ing vi­o­la­tion in 1997. Texas A&M stu­dent Jeff Schiefel­bein was cited for DWI and man­dated to at­tend a Moth­ers Against Drunk Driv­ing panel, where a mom whose daugh­ter was killed by a drunk driver spoke. In­spired to help in some way, he cre­ated CAR­POOL, a stu­dent-run safe-ride pro­gram that has since given over 278,000 rides to any­one in his col­lege town. Sub­se­quently, in­spired stu­dents on other cam­puses have cre­ated sim­i­lar pro­grams to of­fer no-ques­tions-asked, no-judg­ment rides. Check it out on Face­book
