Nearly a third of drivers on the road every New Year's Eve should not be driving in the first place because they are intoxicated. Knowing that fact, two Massachusetts towing companies are stepping up to make sure partygoers get home safe.
South Coast Towing Inc. in New Bedford has been participating in the "Safe Rides Home" program for the past 10 years. They offer free rides for anyone who is too drunk to drive along with towing their car. The service is offered between 1 and 4 a.m. on New Year's Eve. Those we need a ride can call 508-677-1869 or 508-995-9777.
Central Street Garage in Foxboro offers a similar service and can be reached at 508-543-9611.
