More from a Prince William police release:
Prince William County Police, as well as law enforcement agencies throughout Virginia and the region, are targeting this time period because the holidays bring a surge in drunk-driving. Drunk driving is both reckless and preventable. The “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign aims to get that point across. Drivers continue to break the law by driving impaired, putting thousands of travelers at risk every day. The Prince William County Police Department wants drivers to know that we don’t tolerate drunk driving. No excuses, no warnings. If drivers are caught driving impaired, they will be arrested. Once impaired, use mass transit, call a cab or ask a sober friend to get you home.
SoberRide, a program run by the Washington Regional Alcohol Program, will offer free taxi rides – up to a $30 fare – from now through January 1, according to a release. The service is available from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and can be scheduled by calling 800-200-TAXI, according to a release.
