Berg Injury Lawyers Safe and Sober Begins Fifth Year of Service, Provides More Than 2,000 Free Rides Home

Alameda, California (EastBayDaily) — For the fifth in a row, Berg Injury Lawyers will provide the Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program during St. Patrick’s Day for those who have been drinking or who don’t feel they have a safe way to get home.

“During the past five years, the Safe and Sober program has provided more than 2,000 rides home,” said William Berg, Founder and Principal of Berg Injury Lawyers. “We’re proud to serve our community in this capacity and are dedicated to preventing drunk driving.”

The Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program will be available from 3 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17, through 3 a.m. on Wednesday, March 18, 2009. To request a free cab ride home within Alameda, Oakland, and Berkeley city limits, call Veterans Cab at (800) 281-4488 and tell them the ride is on Berg Injury Lawyers. To request a free cab ride home within the city of San Francisco, call Luxor Cab Company at (415) 282-4141 and tell them the ride is on Berg Injury Lawyers.

Free cab rides are made available to area residents who otherwise might attempt to drive home after drinking. Rides are provided to an individual’s residence–not to other drinking locations. Due to the high number of ride requests on St. Patrick’s Day, rides cannot be guaranteed for everyone who calls; however, every attempt will be made to accommodate everyone who requests a ride home.

About Safe and Sober Launched in 2004, the Berg Injury Lawyers Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program is an ongoing commitment that seeks to raise community awareness regarding the dangers of drunk driving and encourage individuals to make responsible choices by providing a safe transportation alternative during many of the traditionally high alcohol consumption holidays. The program, which has provided 2,074 safe rides home to date, typically runs during New Year’s Eve, St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, and Halloween.

The program has been successful in reducing the number of alcohol-related deaths and injuries by providing thousands of free cab rides. In 2004, the program was a recipient of a Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Alameda County community service award.
