Driving After Drinking: Who Ya Gonna Call?

Law enforcers say people who get behind the wheel after drinking never think they will lose control of that vehicle, but statistics indicate otherwise. Here's a safer alternative.

December is National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month.

Locally, to help celebrate the holiday period between Christmas and New Year's safely, there are a number of transportation companies through which rides can be set up ahead of time.

Some suggest the following backup plan if you don't have a designated driver after drinking at parties: Write the name and phone number of a cab company, along with your address onto a paper or the back of a business card that you can stick in your wallet or shirt pocket. Hand this information to a bartender before you've had too many, so that he or she can call a cab for you when the party is ready to shut down for the night.
