Choose a Safe Ride Home This St. Patrick’s Day
Let the cab drivers know: “It’s on McDivitt!”
McDivitt Law Firm is offering free cab rides home on the evening of March 17, 2015, from 9pm – 3am to help keep our roads safe while people are out celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Colorado Springs and Pueblo.
“We’re trying to make the decision easy for someone who’s out drinking,” said attorney David McDivitt, COO of McDivitt Law Firm. “Just don’t get behind the wheel. We will pay for your entire fare home. All you have to do is tell the driver it’s on McDivitt.”
If you’re heading out to celebrate on March 17th, McDivitt encourages you to have a plan for how you’ll get home. Either designate a sober driver, arrange to have someone pick you up, or hail a cab on us.
McDivitt has been offering the program since 2007 and has given more than 19,000 safe rides home to residents of Southern Colorado since it began. The firm will pick up the tab for any Yellow Cab or City Cab ride, as long as the passengers are headed home – the free ride is not available from a bar or a restaurant to another drinking establishment. (See below for all the guidelines).
It’s on McDivitt!
For a safe ride home, call one of the following cab companies and tell them your ride home is on McDivitt Law Firm:
- Colorado Springs – Call Yellow Cab of Colorado Springs at (719) 777-7777.
- Pueblo & Pueblo West – Call City Cab of Pueblo at (719) 543-2525.
Guidelines for a Safe Ride Home
The Safe Ride Home program is for adults who have been drinking or who don’t have another safe way home. Rides are provided to an individual’s residence—not to other drinking locations. Due to the high number of ride requests, rides cannot be guaranteed for everyone who calls; however, every attempt will be made to accommodate all requests. Drivers have the right to use their discretion when accepting fares. Patrons are reminded to tip their drivers accordingly.
McDivitt Wants Everyone to Get Home Safely
The professionals at McDivitt Law Firm work with clients who have been injured or lost loved ones in alcohol-related crashes. To assist in the fight against drunk driving, the firm encourages individuals to make responsible choices by providing free cab rides on St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, Halloween, and New Year’s Eve.
McDivitt Law Firm’s Safe Ride Home program continues to receive recognition from the community. In January 2012 and January 2013, U.S. Army Major General Joseph Anderson presented a certificate of recognition to the law firm. In September 2010, the firm was honored by the Pikes Peak DUI Task Force for its efforts to prevent drunk driving.
