If you celebrate Independence Day with alcohol, celebrate your freedom; don’t spend the holiday in jail for a DUI. If you don’t have a designated driver, call ArriveSafe at 449-9999 for a FREE cab ride home in Montgomery County. This program runs until Monday, July 5th at 6am.
Montgomery County Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck, Jr., with support from AAA Miami Valley and Heidelberg Distributing Company, have offered this program for the last several years over major holidays that traditionally include drinking. Since starting the program, they estimate that 1000 people have taken advantage of these no questions asked rides.
This year, the Ohio State Highway Patrol has arrested more than 340 people in Montgomery County for DUI. In just the first four months of this year, there were 87 alcohol related traffic crashes in Montgomery County.
So celebrate the holiday, but have a designated driver or call 449-9999 and request a free ride home. ArriveSafe will pay the cab fare up to $50.
