Free Cab Rides on New Year’s Eve
Posted on Dec 31, 2010 in DUI/DWI, Local Issues
In their ongoing effort to reduce drunk driving accidents, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office will be offering free cab rides home to any Jefferson Parish resident who has had too much to drink this New Year’s Eve.
If you have a few too many drinks tonight, don’t get behind the wheel. Call 911 and request your free cab ride. You must tell the dispatcher your location, and a taxi will be sent to take you home. The program only allows for free rides from locations within Jefferson Parish to any residence in the parish. The program does not allow for free rides from any other area, including New Orleans.
If you are celebrating the new year, think ahead and plan a sober ride home. The Safe Ride Home Program should reduce the number of drunk drivers on the rode, but officers will still be patrolling the streets. If you or anyone you know is charged with a DUI, Bloom Legal can be contacted at 599-9997 for the best DUI defense in the city.
