Mason County law enforcement is partnering again this year with local towing companies, Mothers Against Drunk Driving of Mason County, S.A.D.D., Ludington Beverage and Ludington Mass Transportation Authority in an effort to keep travelers safe on New Year’s Eve by providing a free ride and/or a free tow during the New Year’s Eve holiday.
