Attention Las Cruces – Don’t Drink and Drive
Drinking and driving is dumb and, everyone needs to stop doing it. Toward that end, from now through February 28, the Dona Ana Sheriff's department has a bunch of DWI checkpoints planned.
If you have a few too many, you have options. Bring a designated driver to begin with, call a friend, walk or just stay where you are if possible. Within certain hours, you can also get a super cheap cab ride! A Las-Cruces Sun-News article said:
a person or group who has been drinking any amount of alcohol can call (575) 524-TAXI to be picked up for a discounted ride home. Project HOME will only take people from a bar or party to the rider’s residence.
The fee is $5 for up to two people and $10 for up to four. Here in El Paso, free rides are available 24/7 for tipsy drivers by calling (915) 212-7777.
