Free rides offered again on New Year’s Eve.

LUDINGTON — Free rides through the Drive Safe-Drive Sober Campaign will again be offered to New Year’s Eve revelers. The program is a cooperative effort between Ludington Police Department, Scottville Police Department, Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Michigan State Police-Hart Post, Abrahamson’s Towing, Quinn’s Towing, Oceana Auto, Fiers Towing,  Ludington Mass Transportation Authority, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers-Mason County, SADD, Judy’s Rides, Ludington Taxi Ludington Beverage Company, as well as several area businesses in an effort to make this New Year’s Eve’s another safe one.

The group will provide a free ride to anyone wishing to use the service.   Reservations can be made by calling LMTA at 231-845-6218 up to 4 p.m. on Monday, December 31,  2018. Last minute arrangements can be made with LMTA starting at 8 p.m. on New Year’s Eve as well.

Area businesses can also call and arrange a ride for their customers.

The service area for this year is the City of Ludington, Pere Marquette Township, east to the City of Scottville, and then north to Hansen Road and south to Conrad Road.

As in past years Abrahamson’s Towing, Quinn’s Towing, Fiers Towing and Oceana Auto will assist those needing their vehicles towed home, free of charge, as well.  

“Area law enforcement agencies believe that with alternate ways to get home and increased patrol activity, the result will be a safer, more enjoyable holiday, not only for those that visit the local establishments, but for every motorist on the road,” said Ludington Police Chief Mark Barnett.  

Over the years the Drive Safe-Drive Sober Campaign has been a great community-wide effort to make the New Year’s Eve a safe and enjoyable holiday.  If your holiday plans include alcohol all Mason County law enforcement agencies, ask that your transportation plans also include the free rides to and from your destinations.”
