SoberRide: Save this number

21 Dec

‘Tis the season of holiday parties and questionable decisions; one of which is drunk driving. But not to fear! The Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) offers free taxi rides home (up to $30) through its SoberRide program. Since 1993, WRAP has provided over 49,000 rides. Rides are available from 10pm to 6am now through January 1. So save this number in your cell phone: 1-800-200-8294.

Think you’ll be okay to drive because you’re only planning to have one or two drinks? Well, a 2005 Washington Post story made a lot waves and may make you think twice.

So now that you know how you’re getting home, check out City Stream and the Express for places to celebrate New Year’s. Have fun! Be safe.
