We want to prevent drunk driving and encourage everyone to celebrate Cinco de Mayo responsibly, and if you need a safe way home call Yellow Cab and tell them the ride is on us.
Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) April 26, 2011
Widely thought of as Mexico’s Independence Day, Cinco de Mayo is really the anniversary of when Mexican soldiers forced the French out of Puebla, Mexico, in 1862. Since then, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican heritage, tradition, and cuisine—it’s also become a time for increased drunk driving. To help curb this serious problem and keep everyone on the road safe, McDivitt Law Firm will provide its Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program this Cinco de Mayo.
“We want to prevent drunk driving and encourage everyone to celebrate Cinco de Mayo responsibly," said Colorado Springs personal injury attorney Mike McDivitt, founder McDivitt Law Firm. "If you need a safe way home call Yellow Cab and tell them the ride is on us.”
Don’t Make It Your Final Fiesta—Get a Free Ride Home
Rides will be available in Colorado Springs from 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 5, through 3 a.m., on Friday, May 6.
For a free 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.
The program is for adults who have been drinking or who don’t have a safe way home, and rides are provided to an individual’s residence—not to other drinking locations. Due to the high number of ride requests on Cinco de Mayo, 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.
The professionals at McDivitt Law Firm work with clients who have lost loved ones in alcohol-related crashes. To assist in the fight against drunk driving, the firm encourages individuals to make responsible choices by providing free cab rides on St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, Halloween, and New Year’s Eve.
McDivitt Law Firm launched its first Safe and Sober program on New Year’s Eve 2007. Since then, the firm has covered the cost for more than 5,000 safe rides home. In September 2010, McDivitt Law Firm was honored by the Pikes Peak DUI Task Force for its efforts to prevent drunk driving.
