Operation Safe Ride activated for New Year’s Eve in Yarmouth

YARMOUTH – Operation Safe Ride Home starts at 6:00 p.m. Thursday, December 31, and ends at 3:00 a.m. on Friday, January 1, 2016.  Any citizen who needs a free and safe ride home from a Yarmouth licensed liquor establishment should call Town Taxi directly at 508.775.5555.

The Yarmouth Police Department encourages all Yarmouth and other Cape Cod drivers to look out for each other. Don’t let others drive drunk, and don’t tolerate those who do, or ride with them. Drinking and driving injures or kills a driver every day. This is why no one should drive impaired or ride with anyone who is.  If you see an impaired driver call 911 and help us keep our citizens safe.

Yarmouth Police consider impaired driving a very serious crime and are extremely proactive in OUI enforcement. Additional police officers will be on patrol all night. Do not drink and drive and if you need a ride home take advantage of this highly successful program which will provide citizens with a free ride home during this New Year’s Eve.

Please be smart and be safe and best wishes to all in 2016!
