New Year party-goers will have a free ride available to them if they’ve had too much to drink. Other opportunities may not be so pleasant, officials said Tuesday.
Authorities say they will be on the lookout for intoxicated drivers through the New Year. Anyone caught drinking and driving will get a free ride to jail.
There are other options.
ABC Taxi will have four vans in force until 5 a.m. New Years Day to provide rides to intoxicated drivers.
As a public service, ABC Taxi is offering free rides home from some of the local casinos and taverns.
ABC Taxi can be contacted at 533-4093.
Miami’s trolley will also be running New Years Eve. Contact dispatch for the trolley at 542-1356.
“We want everyone to have a safe and happy New Year,” said Assistant Police Chief Todd Chenoweth. “Just be smart. Have a designated driver or call a cab.”
The cost is too high not to — especially if the price is the loss of life.
