The goal of our program is to deter drunk driving by making it as easy as possible for people who have ANY alcohol to obtain a safe ride home

McDivitt Law Firm will provide the Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program during St. Patrick's Day for those who have been drinking or who don't feel they have a safe way to get home.

"The goal of our program is to deter drunk driving by making it as easy as possible for people who have ANY alcohol to obtain a safe ride home," Mike McDivitt, Attorney and Founder of McDivitt Injury Lawyers.

The Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program will be available from 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17, through 3 a.m. on Wednesday, March 18, 2009.

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.

Free cab rides are provided to an individual's residence--not to other drinking locations. 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.

In addition to offering Safe and Sober, McDivitt Law Firm is currently hosting a video PSA contest for local high school students. The contest asks teens to create PSAs that focus on the dangers of underage drinking and driving. The winner will receive a Mac laptop computer, and his or her entry will air on television throughout the summer.
