Sober Options For New Year's Eve 2013

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – For those heading out for New Year's Eve, there are several options to keep you safe if you are too impaired to drive yourself home.

The Davidson County Sheriff's Office is offering free sober rides for anyone who parties a little too hard on New Year's Eve.

There will be three pick-up points in Nashville: 2nd Avenue and Church Street; Demonbreun Street near the Roundabout; and at Five Points in east Nashville.

From 10 p.m. until 2 a.m., volunteers will be on hand to drive you home or to a hotel in Davidson County.

If you are in Clarksville, you can get a free, sober ride home from the Clarksville Transit System. "Operation Safe Ride" is a free service open to anyone who is too impaired to drive home.

People who live within the Clarksville city limits can call for a ride between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. for a ride home. The number to call for a safe ride is (931) 553-2429.

Another option is AAA's "Tow to Go," a service that provides a confidential ride home and tow, free of charge, to anyone who may have had too much to drink by calling 1-800-AAA-HELP (4357).

"Tow to Go" has kept more than 12,300 drunk drivers off the roads since 1998 and is designed to protect everyone on the roads from preventable car crashes, not just the intoxicated driver from a DUI.
