SoberRide to Be Available for St. Patrick's Day

As part of an effort to curb drunken driving, the Washington Regional Alcohol Program will be sponsoring free cab rides on St. Patrick's Day.

The St. Patty's Day SoberRide will be available in Prince William, Loudoun, Fairfax and Arlington counties, as well as the District, from 4 p.m. Tuesday to 4 a.m. Wednesday. People wishing to use the service can call 800-200-TAXI and get a free ride, up to what would be a $50 fare. AT&T wireless customers can also dial #TAXI.

Last year, 218 people used SoberRide to get home on St. Patrick's Day. For information, visit
