The Washington Regional Alcohol Program is covering taxi fares up to $30 as part of its annual holiday SoberRide campaign, which starts Friday and ends Jan. 1. The free cabs will run from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. every day during that period.
“Last December, nearly 1,500 (1,456) Greater Washington residents did the right thing and availed themselves of this lifesaving service rather than possibly driving home impaired,” WRAP president Kurt Gregory Erickson said in a statement. “For SoberRide’s hours of operation during just last New Year’s Eve, alone, such ridership (580) translated into the removal of a would-be drunk driver from our shared roadways every 49-seconds.”
To get a complimentary ride, call 800-200-8294.
