Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin continues fight against drunk driving by providing free cab rides home on Halloween

Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home provides a safe transportation alternative during many of the traditionally high alcohol consumption holidays.

Whether you’ve had one drink or several, it just isn’t worth the risk. Buzzed driving is still drunk driving.

Halloween is becoming one of the scariest nights of the year to be on the road because of drunk drivers. In fact, the number of motor vehicle fatalities rises 30 percent when Halloween is on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. To help reduce these accidents, Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin will be offering its Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program for adults who have been drinking or who don’t feel they have a safe way to get home this Halloween.

“There’s absolutely no excuse for getting behind the wheel drunk," said attorney Steve Fleschner. "Whether you’ve had one drink or several, it just isn’t worth the risk. Buzzed driving is still drunk driving.”

Get a Free Cab Ride Home

The Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program will be available in Terre Haute and West Terre Haute from 8 p.m. on Sunday, October 31, through 2 a.m. Monday, November 1, 2010.

To request a free cab ride home, call Yellow Cab of Terre Haute at (812) 478-5000 and tell them Fleschner Law is paying for your safe ride home.

  • Adults must call Yellow Cab of Terre Haute and mention the program to get a free ride home.
  • Cab rides are provided from a bar or restaurant to an individual’s residence—not to other drinking locations.
  • Due to the high number of ride requests on Halloween, rides cannot be guaranteed for everyone who calls; however, every attempt will be made to accommodate all requests. Drivers have the right to use their discretion when accepting fares.
  • For the safety of all drivers, patrons are asked to remove any masks or facial coverings while riding in cabs. Drivers have the right to use their discretion when accepting fares.
