MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Stay safe during the holiday season by taking advantage of Safety Cab, a program that offers free cab rides home.

The community service is provided during the Christmas season to impaired drivers with a safe alternative to getting behind the wheel in order to prevent automobile accidents and injuries during the holidays. It is not intended to encourage people to drink irresponsibly.

Transportation for Safety Cab is provided by Twin City Yellow Cab. Free rides home will be offered from 8 p.m. until 3 a.m. daily beginning Thursday, December 12, 2013. Hours will be extended from 8 p.m. until 4 a.m. on New Year's Eve into New Year's Day. 

Safety Cab will take people from a party or bar in Ouachita Parish to their home anywhere within the parish limits. The service will not take people to another party or bar.

"If you want to go to Waffle House before you head home, well we're going to charge you for that," says cab driver Jason Pruitt.

Pruitt says he wants to take the guess work out of driving home after a party.

"Why not call us, it's fast, free and your safest bet," says Pruitt.

Those needing a ride home can call the cab service at 322-3113.
