Free Holiday Weekend Cab Rides Available in Montgomery County
MONTGOMERY COUNTY -- The ArriveSafe program will again provide free cab rides home this Independence Day weekend.
Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck Jr. says Montgomery County residents will get a ride home -- up to a fare of $50 -- from 6 p.m. Thursday, July 3, through 6 a.m. Sunday, July 6.
Heck says Arrive Safe has provided more than 4,000 free rides, at no cost to taxpayers.
"Removing just one impaired driver from the streets may save a life - maybe even you own," Heck said.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has reported the Fourth of July holiday is one of the worst days of the year for fatal car crashes. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported last year that between 2007 and 2011, drunk driving over the Fourth of July weekend caused 40 percent of all highway deaths.
Heck said all those crashes and fatalities were avoidable, if only the driver had not made the choice to drive while impaired.

Also tomorrow, Montgomery County Sheriff's Office along with the county's OVI task force will announce the time and location of a sobriety checkpoint this weekend. Making it even more critical that you find a safe ride home this weekend.
