Downtown Los Angeles bars and restaurants will offer extra incentives to be a designated driver. All you have to do is notify the waiter or bartender. Forty participating businesses are offering everything from free soda to a complimentary game of pool.

The program kicks off on Thursday at the downtown Art Walk, where designated drivers will receive special wristbands and perks.

A grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety is funding the program.
