St. Patrick's Day SoberRide, free rides home, on Sunday

The great SoberRide program, where you can call a free taxi to take you home if you've had too many to drink, is up and running for this St. Patrick's Day, from 4pm on Sunday to 4am on Monday. Here's more info (and click the flyer for a bigger version)!
If you plan on making a big night of it this St. Patrick's Day, don’t rely on luck to get home safely. Together with the Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) SoberRide initiative, AT&;T is proud to provide free taxirides (up to $30) to anyone 21 and over in the greater Washington, DC area who may have had one too many Irish Car Bombs or pints of Guinness home.

AT&T customers can call #WRAP to get a safe, free ride home, while others can dial 800-200-8294 (TAXI). The program will be in effect beginning at 4:00 p.m. Sunday (3/17) and continue until 4:00 a.m. Monday morning (3/18).

WRAP's SoberRide provides greater Washington, DC residents a safe way home on high-risk holidays, including the December/January holiday season, St. Patrick’s Day, Independence Day and Halloween. Last St. Patrick’s Day, a total of 606 Washington-area residents took advantage of the program, preventing a would-be drunk driver from hitting the road every 71 seconds.
(And fun fact, the names Irish car bombs and black & tans are bad form in Ireland.)
