A total of 124 safe rides were provided in Bowling Green by the Swallow Your Pride, Call for a Ride offer on New Year’s Eve, according to Sandy Wiechman, Wood County Safe Communities coordinator.
She said the first call was received at 5:40 p.m. Tuesday and the last call at 5:10 a.m. Wednesday.
The busiest time was from midnight through 3:15 a.m. with 45 calls. There were nine calls between 3:15 and 5:10 a.m.
Bowling Green Police issued two citations for drunk driving.
At 10:54 p.m. Tuesday, Evan Karchner, Maumee, was cited for operating a vehicle while impaired (BAC 0.148) at Summit Street and Frazee Avenue.
At 1:54 a.m. Wednesday, Jessica Phorpe, Xenia, was cited for operating a vehicle while impaired (BAC 0.260) and stopping in the roadway after police found her stopped in the 100 block of East Wooster Street.
“I would like to thank the numerous partners who made this evening an overwhelming success,” Wiechman said. “Without the wrecker companies, Super Cab, and the downtown Bowling Green bar owners, this evening would not have been the overwhelming success that it was. Special thank you to Chief Brad Conner, Major Tony Hetrick, Lt. Jerrod Savidge, and Barbara Ruland for the extra assistance in planning and implementation of the program.”
