Wood County Safe Communities will announce a new initiative on Monday to combat drunk driving on New Year's.
The initiative, "Swallow Your Pride, Call for a Ride" is a collaborative effort of the Wood County Safe Communities Coalition, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Bowling Green Police Division, Bowling Green State University Police Department, BGSU Shuttle Services and AAA Northwest Ohio, seeking to provide safe alternative transportation to Wood County residents to lower the number of alcohol-involved arrests, crashes and fatal crashes.
Wright Tire and Automotive, Shipley Automotive, BG Towing and Frank's Automotive will provide free transportation from 6 p.m. on Tuesday to 6 a.m. on Wednesday. Rides will be available from local establishments in Bowling Green to persons who reside within 10 miles of the city. Also available is Tipsy Tow sponsored by AAA Northwest Ohio.
This program will provide a tow for vehicles and a ride to their residence, also within 10 miles of the tow.
