Free Taxi Service for Impaired Drivers

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WDEF) – Local law enforcement officials say don’t drink and drive this holiday season.

Instead, use a free taxi provided by Bradford Health Services.

The partnership was just announced Monday morning.

From December 24th until January 2nd, you can call Bradford Health Services and request a free ride.

In the last ten months, there have been dozens of alcohol-related traffic crashes in Hamilton County.

Sheriff Jim Hammond says this free taxi service will reduce that number and save lives.

Sheriff Hammond adds, "There’s nothing more tragic than during this season when everyone’s enjoying the season and the holiday spirit than to have one of these officers behind me knock on the door of a family member and tell them they are not coming home."

These local law enforcement agencies also introduced DUI Trooper Taxi’s" to further market their anti-drunk driving campaign.

The taxi’s are specially marked vehicles with messages on them.
