THOUSAND PALMS, Calif. – American Cab and Walter Clark Legal Group will partner once again to in their exclusive Valley-wide initiative to raise awareness of drinking and driving, and provide the public service of free rides home on and New Year’s Eve.

Drivers who have been drinking, or someone on their behalf, can call American Cab for a ride home. Free cab rides can be ordered by calling American Cab’s dispatch at (760) 300-0000 between 10:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 30th and Saturday, January 1st, 2017.

The caller must specify they are calling for the “Home Safe” program. A cab will be sent to the impaired driver’s location to pick them up and drive them to their home or hotel in the Coachella Valley cities of Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, La Quinta, Bermuda Dunes, Indio, and Coachella.

“This is another example of how we are involved in this community, and care for this community,” said Greg Klibanov, owner of American Cab. “You won’t see ride share companies providing initiatives like this because they are national in scope and not concerned with being a good local partner to the residents and visitors of the Coachella Valley like we are.”

“There is a festive time of year, but no celebration is worth risking the events that can occur as a result of drinking and driving,” said Walter Clark, principal of Walter Clark Legal Group. “That’s why we feel so strongly about getting behind this program year after year. We see firsthand the tragedies that unfold due to drunk driving, and how they alter lives forever. We want to help prevent that.”

For more information, call American Cab at 760-300-0000 or Walter Clark Legal Group at 760-777-7777
