As a response to the Fourth of July being that U.S. holiday when nearly half of all traffic deaths are alcohol-related, a local non-profit group will be offering free cab rides throughout the Washington DC area. The SoberRide program
will be available on July 4th from 10:00 pm until 4:00 a.m. on July 5th as a way to keep local roads safe from impaired drivers during this traditionally high-risk holiday period. Participating taxicab companies include: Alexandria Yellow Cab, Barwood; Fairfax Yellow Cab; Loudoun Yellow Cab; Manassas Cab Company; Red Top Cab; Silver Cab of Prince George's County; Yellow Cab of D.C.; and Yellow Cab of Prince William County.
