Are you hosting or attending a New Year’s Eve party? Be prepared with phone numbers of taxi companies or free ride services.
The cost of a cab is not cheap, but it sure beats the alternative.
A DUI costs offenders an estimated $6,600, according to the California Department of Alcohol and Drugs Programs, and an alcohol-related motor vehicle crash kills someone every 30 minutes. If you are drinking, do not drive this holiday season. Call a cab on New Year’s Eve. ~ lajolla.patch.com
In the counties of Hartford/Middlesex/Windham/Tolland/New London in Connecticut, AAA is partnering with AmRide to provide free rides home.
If you live in Washington D.C., Maryland or Virginia, you can call SoberRide taxi service for a free ride home.
Burlington Vermont, Springfield Massachussets, Utica/Saratoga/Amsterdam or the Capital District in New York? Call these guys.
Denver, Colorado? Here’s an attorney who will reimburse you up to $35.
Tacoma County, Washington? Here you go.
The rest of us should follow these guidelines set by usa.gov.
