Thanksgiving Eve is a night most people arrive to holiday destinations to visit and eat with friends and family the next day. Since most people don’t have to work the following day, the excitement of the upcoming holiday can often lead to heavy drinking. That is why, according to the Tribune-Star, the local Terre Haute, Indiana, law firm Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos, & Newlin are offering free cab rides home for anyone who may have had too much to drink.
The rides are part of the firm’s commitment to their Safe and Sober campaign, which is an effort to end drunk driving in the area. The law firm feels if they don’t have to pay for a ride, the intoxicated individual will be less inclined to get behind the wheel.
Rides will be available form 8:00 PM this evening, until 3:00 AM Thursday throughout Terre Haute and West Terre Haute. Rides will be given from a restaurant or bar to a person’s place of residence, not another place to drink. Also, because of the high number of rides given last year, the firm asks that you call at least 30 minutes in advance of when you want a ride. Cabs can be reached by calling Yellow Cab of Terre Haute at (812) 478-5000.
The Indiana Auto Accident Attorneys with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin would like to urge everyone to have a safe and happy Thanksgiving by refraining from getting behind the wheel if you have had too much to drink. In the words of founding attorney, Steve Fleschner, “Don’t let yourself, or someone you love, become another statistic.”
