Prosecutor Offers "ArriveSafe Program"

Montgomery County Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck, Jr. is pleased to announce that with support from AAA Miami Valley and Heidelberg Distributing Company, ArriveSafe will be offering free cab rides home for Montgomery County residents this New Year’s holiday weekend.

Since Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck, Jr. started ArriveSafe in December 2007, ArriveSafe has provided over 2,700 free cabs rides for Montgomery County residents. Removing just one impaired driver from the streets may safe a life – maybe even your own life.

This year, Montgomery County has had over 140 alcohol related traffic crashes – 11 of those involved fatalities. Every one of these crashes was avoidable – if only the driver had not made the CHOICE to drive while impaired.

ArriveSafe will be offering free cab rides home for Montgomery County residents December 28-31, from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. daily. Prosecutor Heck said, “This holiday weekend, there is simply no excuse for drinking and driving. You decide: do you want to go home in the back of a cab, or handcuffed in the back of a cruiser?”

It’s simple to make a responsible choice – have a designated, sober driver or call ArriveSafe at 449-9999 and request a free ride home. We will pay the cab fare up to $50.
