An Evansville law firm will be paying for New Year's cab rides home for the 18th year in a row.
The Evansville Courier and Press reports that Woods and Woods firm will pay for rides within Evansville and Vanderburgh County limits. Rides will be offered from 11 p.m. on Thursday, New Year's Eve, through 4 a.m. on Friday, New Year's Day. Riders should arrange with Unity Taxi and say that the firm is paying for the cost of the ride.
Law firm spokesman Steve Woods says the firm knows providing safe rides is important because it has handled so many drunken driving cases. Woods says attorneys have "seen the toll that drunken drivers take on our community."
Indiana State Police say there will be extra troopers on roadways Thursday night too.
