Montgomery County Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck, Jr. is pleased to announce that with continued support from AAA Miami Valley and Heidelberg Distributing Company, ArriveSafe will be offering free cab rides home for Montgomery County residents this Thanksgiving weekend.
Since Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck, Jr. started the program in December 2007, ArriveSafe has provided nearly 6,000 free cabs rides for Montgomery County residents. Removing just one impaired driver from the streets may save a life – maybe even your own.
This year, Montgomery County has had over 235 alcohol-related traffic crashes which resulted in an injury and sadly, 10 fatalities. Every one of these crashes was avoidable – if only the driver had not made the WRONG CHOICE to drive while impaired.
ArriveSafe will be offering free cab rides home for Montgomery County residents from 6:00 pm Wednesday, November 22nd and ending at 6:00 am on Sunday, November 26th, 2017.
Prosecutor Heck said, “Each and every day, there simply is no excuse for drinking and driving. This Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we’ll pay for a cab. You decide – do you want to go home in the back of a cab, or handcuffed in the back of a cruiser? Plan ahead and get home safely.”
It’s simple to make a responsible choice – have a sober designated driver, use a ride- sharing service, or call ArriveSafe at 449-9999 and request a free ride home. We will pay the cab fare up to $50.
