Free rides help keep drinkers off the roads New Year’s Eve

December 30, 2000


If you do drink too much on New Year's Eve, be smart: Find yourself a safe ride home.

One way to do that is to call for a Tipsy Taxi, sponsored by the Lawrence Taxi Service and several businesses and agencies in the area.

The service ferried about 200 revelers to their homes in both 1998 and 1999.

Free rides are given only to those who ask for them and only to their homes, not another party or business. Sometimes there's a wait, due to demand.

The service will be available from 8 p.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday. For a ride, call the Lawrence Taxi Service at 842-8294. Ask specifically for a Tipsy Taxi ride.

And if you think your hangover is part of a larger drinking problem, call the DCCCA Center, 3312 Clinton Parkway Drive, at 841-4138. Alcoholics Anonymous offers a free, 24-hour help line at 841-0110.
