[July 02, 2016]  LINCOLN - Healthy Communities Partnership is encouraging those who celebrate the fourth of July with alcohol to utilize SAFE RIDES, a free ride home to prevent drunk driving accidents.

On July 2-4, Safe Ride will be available in Lincoln to those who need it. Safe Ride is a free ride home sponsored by the Healthy Communities Partnership.

“Safe Ride helps to keep our streets safer on nights when children and families are more likely to be celebrating away from home. Our hope is that the community will remember that the service is available and choose not to drink and drive,” said Angela Stoltzenburg, Healthy Communities Partnership Manager.

In 2016, Safe Ride will also be available during Arts in the Park, Logan County Fair, Art and Balloon Fest, Labor Day weekend, the night before Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.

To receive a free ride home within the city limits on any of these nights, ask the bartender for a Safe Ride ticket.

Healthy Communities Partnership is a collaborative organization comprised of dozens of community agencies. It is supported by the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation. For more information and updates, individuals should “like” Healthy Communities Partnership on Facebook.
