StearClear provides a safe alternative solution to having to leave your car overnight when over the legal limit.

StearClear addresses the problem of solo-drivers when they’ve had one too many alcoholic drinks. Instead of having to abandon the car overnight and pick it up the next day, the user can simply call for a designated driver using the mobile app.

Unlike peer-to-peer car-sharing programs that offer similar services, StearClear lets local entrepreneurs buy into the program.  For example, someone could pay StearClear $30,000 to buy a zipcodes that would cover around 70,000 people. Franchise owners get access to the turnkey solution and keep 80% of the revenue generated.

StearClear has already received a total of $1.1 million in funding and did a soft-launch in July that saw 1,500 new customer registrations, averaging about 6-10 rides per week per franchise. The service for the intoxicated user costs a flat-rate of $20 plus $2 per mile. The app plans for a hard-launch in October across areas in the U.S.
