The Szantho Law Firm Advocates Use Of Local Safe Ride Programs This Holiday Season

The Szantho Law Firm Advocates Drivers Be Aware Of And Utilize Safe Ride Programs This Holiday Season

The holidays are a special time of year for many people. Friends and family drive long distances in order to be together, and it is a time to celebrate the achievements of the year past. However it is also a time when many have a bit too much to drink and are then left wondering how to get home again. The Szantho Law Firm reminds drivers that there are low-cost and sometimes free options in many places, designed to keep people from having to drink and drive.

“Many local jurisdictions in New Mexico have created year round programs in order to combat drinking and driving,” says Andras Szantho, founder of the Szantho Law Firm. “During the holidays many of those are expanded. In addition there are often seasonal programs to help even more people.”

In Albuquerque and Bernalillo County there are year round options provided by the county. ‘Pick Me Up - Take Me Home’ operates on Thursday nights, while the Tavern Taxi program runs on Friday and Saturday nights. More information can be found at: http://www.bernco.gov/Tavern-Taxi/ or call (505) 999-1400 in order to request a ride home

Santa Fe County offers the Cab Ride Home program. It is also a year-round program that operates on Friday and Saturday nights. While funded in part by the county, there is a minimal fee per person, and riders are responsible for overages on fares over $25. For more information on Cab Ride Home please visit: http://www.santafecountynm.gov/community_services/dwi_program or call 438-0000.

“Drinking and driving is not only illegal, it is dangerous,” concludes Szantho. “Planning ahead with a designated driver or for a pick-up is the best option. However, when plans fail or you find yourself drinking unexpectedly we recommend utilizing the free and low-cost services that are designed to keep you and others safe.”
