Be safe as you celebrate!
As you prepare to ring in 2014, we’d like to remind everyone to play it safe on New Year’s Eve. If you’re going to be out and about, make sure you have a designated driver in your group.
If you don’t have someone who can get you home safely, consider taking advantage of Fort Wayne’s free holiday cab service. Anyone within a 10-mile radius of downtown Fort Wayne can call (260) 426-1301 to request a free ride home between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m. (Those who happen to be outside the 10-mile radius simply need to pay the difference.)
Local law enforcement agencies support the program, which is now in its 26th year. Last year, local party goers requested a total of 376 rides in conjunction with the program.
“The Holiday Cab program provides a great community service,” Mayor Tom Henry says. “We commend them for making sure our residents stay safe and that no lives are endangered on our roadways during the holiday season. We applaud and support their mission to reduce impaired driving and get everyone home safely.”
