This 4th of July, the law firm Martin, Harding & Mazzotti has announced plans to continue its program to keep area roadways safe by offering free cab rides to those in need of a safe ride home. On Wednesday, July 4th from 8pm until midnight, the firm will offer free cab rides to anyone in the Capital District, Saratoga, Utica, Amsterdam, NY areas, Springfield, MA and Burlington, VT in need of transportation.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has ranked the 4th of July the deadliest holiday of the year from alcohol related crashes for the past 25 years. Further, 51 percent of all deadly traffic crashes on July 4th are alcohol related. Therefore, Martin, Harding & Mazzotti believes its public service programig especially important this holiday. By calling 1800LAW1010 or dialing Star-Star-LAW (**529) on a mobile phone area residents will be connected with an operator that will coordinate a free ride from their location to their place of residence.

"Americans celebrate our independence on this holiday, but in doing so we all need to remember to be responsible. If you drink, don’t drive," the firm's managing partner, Paul Harding said. "This is a family holiday, and Martin, Harding, and Mazzotti is happy help people make a responsible choice by offering July 4th revelers an alternative to getting behind the wheel drunk."

The free cab rides program has had nearly a decade of success in numerous New York and Massachusetts locations with more than 1,000 rides given out.
