A new study finds Uber is not decreasing drunk driving deaths.

Researchers looked at drunk driving statistics in the 100 most populated metro areas in the United States for 2009 through 2014.

The rise of Uber did not correspond to any decrease in drunk driving deaths overall or during peak drinking times like weekend nights.

The ride sharing company insists it does impact drunk deaths but authors said it will be more likely to impact the future.
