Festivities usually begin early on St. Patrick’s Day, and many times, people don’t realize just how much alcohol they’ve consumed by the time they’re ready to go home
Colorado Springs, CO (Vocus) March 13, 2010
Three years and 3,600 safe rides home later, McDivitt Law Firm carries on its tradition of keeping the community safe by hosting its Safe and Sober Free Ride Home program on St. Patrick’s Day for adults who have been drinking or who don’t feel they have a safe way to get home.
“Festivities usually begin early on St. Patrick’s Day, and many times, people don’t realize just how much alcohol they’ve consumed by the time they’re ready to go home,” said Colorado injury lawyer Mike McDivitt, founder of McDivitt Injury Lawyers. “Plan ahead before you go out, but if you overindulge, take advantage of our Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program.”
Don’t Press Your Luck—Get a Safe Ride Home!
The firm is partnering with Yellow Cab of Colorado Springs to provide rides from a bar or restaurant to an individual’s residence—not to other drinking locations.
- The Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program will be available from 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 17, through 3 a.m. on Thursday, March 18, 2010.
- To request a free cab ride home within Colorado Springs city limits, call Yellow Cab of Colorado Springs at (719) 777-7777 and tell them the ride is on McDivitt Law Firm.
- Due to the high number of ride requests on St. Patrick’s Day, rides cannot be guaranteed for everyone who calls; however, every attempt will be made to accommodate everyone who requests a ride home.
Make a Movie, Make a Difference:
In addition to offering Safe and Sober, McDivitt Law Firm is currently hosting a video public service announcement (PSA) contest for local high school students. The contest asks teens to create PSAs that focus on the dangers of risky driving, such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The winner will receive a Mac laptop computer or a $1,500 gift card, and his or her entry will air on local television throughout the summer. The winner’s school will receive a monetary donation as well. Visit http://www.McDivittMakesADifference.com/psa-contest.com for all the details.
Safe and Sober Free Ride Home Program:
All too often, the professionals at McDivitt Law Firm work with clients who have suffered after losing a loved one in an alcohol-related crash. To assist in the fight against drunk driving, McDivitt Law Firm encourages individuals to make responsible choices by providing a safe transportation alternative during many of the traditionally high alcohol consumption holidays. The program is available during St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, Halloween, and New Year’s Eve.
McDivitt Makes A Difference:

Because of this commitment to helping others, they’ve created McDivitt Makes A Difference—a year-round program that encompasses all the firm’s community service efforts.
