Montgomery County Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck, Jr. is pleased to announce that with support from Heidelberg Distributing Company and AAA Miami Valley, ArriveSafe will once again be offering free cab rides home for Montgomery County residents this St. Patrick’s Day.
Since Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck, Jr. started ArriveSafe in December 2007, ArriveSafe has provided over 4,400 free cabs rides for Montgomery County residents. Removing just one impaired driver from the streets may save a life – maybe even your own.
Last year there were 37 fatal traffic crashes in Montgomery County – over half were alcohol related, and there were an additional 239 alcohol related traffic crashes in which someone was seriously injured. Literally every one of these crashes and fatalities were avoidable – if only the driver had made the responsible CHOICE to not drink and drive.
ArriveSafe will be offering free cab rides home for Montgomery County residents from 6 p.m. Monday, March 16, 2015 through 6 a.m. Wednesday, March 18, 2015.
Prosecutor Heck said, “This St. Patrick’s Day, have fun but celebrate responsibly – have a designated, sober driver or call ArriveSafe at 449-9999 and request a free ride home. We will pay the cab fare up to $50.”
