Avoid a DUI car accident: Free sober rides on St. Patrick's Day

Posted By Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge || Mar 17, 2011

There's no doubt that there is a lot of fun to be had on St. Patrick's Day in Nashville. The Music City throws a great party, especially at the beginning of spring after a long, hard winter.

However, the risk of car accidents caused by drunk drivers increases during times like this. While no one plans to be involved in a drunk-driving accident, we all know they happen. In fact, it's often a lack of planning that allows them to happen. People know they're going to drink, but far too few plan ahead for transportation once they're intoxicated.

To cut down on serious and fatal car accidents related to the festivities, the Davidson County Sheriff's Office is offering free sober rides for Davidson County residents again this year. The free sober rides will be available between 10:00 p.m. Thursday and 2:00 a.m. Friday, and the drivers are available both to pick you up and take you home.

The only requirement for a free sober ride is that you live in Davidson County. If you would like a free sober ride to a St. Patrick's Day celebration or back home afterward, just call (615) 862-RIDE.
