OUACHITA PARISH, La (KNOE) - A local taxi service is keeping people safe during the holidays. Twin City Yellow Cab is starting Safety Cab. They do it every year, for those who've had one too many drinks and can't drive home.
"We're not going to give them a sobriety test, and tell them no you're going to have to drive yourself home. They say they're intoxicated; then we will take them home," Eddie Walker, the general manager, said.
Drivers will pick you up from any party or bar and take you home if you live in Ouachita Parish.
This year they want everyone to know if you get stranded, they'll give you a lift.
"If your buddy got pulled over the rest of the people can get a free ride home," Walker said.
They're even helping some inside if they need it. Management says all the drivers have gone through a background check to ensure everyone's safety.
The service starts Dec. 14th - Jan. 1st. Hours are from 8 p.m. until 3 a.m.
Call: (318) 322-3113 to be picked up.
