Checker Cab Company, Inc. St. Patrick’s Day Free Ride Home Campaign
Offers Citizens a Ride Home during St. Patrick's Day Weekend
For over 30 years Checker Cab Company has provided free rides to the community during the holiday season offering a safe and sober driving coalition for partygoers during the holidays. During this 30-year span, Checker Cab has spent thousands of dollars to provide free rides to the citizens of Atlanta.
As metro Atlanta prepares for the St. Patrick’s Day holiday, Checker Cab Company is again ensuring that partygoers will have a safe ride home from Friday, March 12 at 6pm through Friday, March 19 at 6am.
Checker Cab Company, Inc. and TEAM Georgia’s 2016 “Safe Holiday” Campaign has partnered with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and the Georgia Restaurant Association to offer a free ride from Checker Cab if they are unable to drive home safely. The campaign draws on support from the hospitality industry to promote responsible celebrations for the season.
The Safe Holiday Campaign involves area bars and restaurants to display the Safe Holiday Guide, offer a free non-alcoholic drink to designated drivers, and inform patrons about free rides home. The campaign's 2016 Safe Holiday Guide will reach thousands of Georgia businesses and private hosts with safe celebration suggestions, plus safety and legal reminders for partygoers. Checker Cab Company suggests that you designate a driver, pass the keys to a sober friend, or call Checker Cab for a free ride home at 404-351-1111 to take you and your vehicle home.
One out of three traffic crash fatalities in Georgia is alcohol-related, and over the past decade, the highest number of crashes in Georgia occurred from October thru December. Also, the chance of an accident being fatal is six times higher in crashes involving an impaired driver.
The Checker Cab Company is presented in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and with the support of the Georgia Restaurant Association. For more information on the Safe Holiday Campaign, contact Checker Cab Company at 404-351-1111.
