In partnership with New York City Council Member, NYC STOP-DWI distributed thousands of free metro cards to the public during the holiday season to encourage New Yorkers not to drive under the influence. Remember to still use the MTA or another plan to get home safely.

On Wednesday January 14, Franklin County STOP-DWI helped the "Mac's Safe Ride Continued" project by donating $1000. This program offers a free safe ride home Friday and Saturday nights from 8pm-3am. It is run entirely by volunteers and the ride is free with donations gladly accepted. We are very proud of Vivian Smith and her team for starting such a wonderful program.

You can help to make a difference by Having a Plan! Download our new mobile app – “Have a Plan” and you will always be able to find a safe ride home So root for your favorite team; enjoy your friends and family and remember “DON’T DRIVE, GET A RIDE!
