SoberRide is operating tomorrow

For those of you who plan on indulging heavily tomorrow (it is our Independence Day, after all, we must celebrate!), there is a free cab ride home. You may have to wait 30-60 minutes, but the SoberRide group (provided by the Washington Regional Alcohol Program) will pay your taxi fare up to $50. So, if you get a DC cabbie home tomorrow, make sure to have him zig and zag through a few extra zones for the heck of it.

Seriously, though, if you’re even thinking of driving home after a few beers tomorrow, just don’t. Call these guys and get a free ride home. The cost of a cab into town on the 5th will be dwarfed by the cost of a DUI and a ton of legal fees. Take the safe ride.

Also, please remember that the phone number they list (1.800.200.TAXI or #TAXI on Cingular) will only work if you have a local phone number, so if you’ve kept an out of town cellphone number for any reason, you’re going to have to use a payphone or another local landline to call that number.
