The Cary Police Department again will partner with local towing companies this New Year's Eve to provide free rides home for drivers who have consumed a few too many drinks.
Cary Police Chief Steven Casstevens has announced three local towing companies will offer free rides home - along with a free tow for the driver's car - for those who drink too much to drive on New Year's Eve.
The tow operators include Pat Blank of Whitey’s Towing, 520 Cary-Algonquin Rd., Cary; Dennis Stoner of D&L Midwest Towing, 6711 Sands Rd., Crystal Lake; and Ken McCoy of A Plus Towing, 40 Detroit St., Cary.
The companies will provide the rides and tows to anyone celebrating within the village Cary limits to their home within a 5 mile radius. Service will be provided between the hours of 10 p.m. Dec. 31 until 4 a.m. Jan. 1.
“This is a great service that these companies are providing, helping to keep our residents as well as our roadways safe” Chief Casstevens said.
“This holiday period is notorious for deadly crashes involving impaired drivers, and we want to do whatever we can to prevent tragic incidents like those. We applaud these three companies for providing this service. It’s a great partnership."
Police encourage residents ringing in the New Year with alcohol to find a designated driver to bring them safely home. The free ride and tow program takes that advice one step further” Casstevens said.
This is the second year that the Cary Police Department has partnered with towing companies to provide this service.
