COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., March 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- McDivitt Law Firm's priority is to keep the Colorado Springs community safe by reminding everyone to drive safely. That's why McDivitt Law Firm continues to host its Safe and Sober Free Ride Home program on St. Patrick's Day.

"Many accidents can be prevented by someone's choice to not drink and drive," said Colorado Springs attorney Mike McDivitt, founder of McDivitt Law Firm. "This program helps people make the right choice."

McDivitt Law FirmDon't Leave It to Luck—Get a Safe Ride Home

The Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program is for adults who have been drinking or who don't have a safe way home. Rides will be available in Colorado Springs from 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 17, through 3 a.m., on Friday, March 18.

For a free ride home within Colorado Springs city limits, call Yellow Cab of Colorado Springs at (719) 777-7777 and tell them the ride is on McDivitt Law Firm.

Rides are provided to an individual's residence—not to other drinking locations. Due to the high number of ride requests on St. Patrick's Day, rides cannot be guaranteed for everyone who calls; however, every attempt will be made to accommodate all requests. Drivers have the right to use their discretion when accepting fares.

Safe and Sober Free Ride Home Program

The professionals at McDivitt Law Firm work with clients who have lost loved ones in alcohol-related crashes. To assist in the fight against drunk driving, the firm encourages individuals to make responsible choices by providing free cab rides on St. Patrick's Day, Cinco de Mayo, Halloween, and New Year's Eve. Since then, the firm has covered the cost for more than 5,000 safe rides home.

In September 2010, McDivitt Law Firm was honored by the Pikes Peak DUI Task Force for its efforts to prevent drunk driving. McDivitt Law Firm launched its first Safe and Sober program on New Year's Eve 2007.
