Each year, there is a spike in the number of DUI’s, injuries, and deaths cased by the overconsumption of alcohol. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, 37% of all highway deaths occurring throughout the holiday season are caused by alcohol. Two to three times as many alcohol-related deaths occur during this season than any other time of year, resulting in approximately 728 people being killed or injured every, single day.
More than anything, we care about the well-being of our community. We want our friends, family, and loved ones to be safe, happy, and healthy for a long time. That’s why, every holiday season, we offer our Safe Ride Home Program.
Safe Ride Home makes it simple for those who have consumed a bit too much alcohol to arrive home safely, without putting themselves or others at risk. Consider it our holiday gift to the residents of Douglas and Sarpy Counties. All it takes is one phone call, and you’ll find yourself the recipient of a free cab ride, courtesy of Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop P.C..

Founded in 1990, Safe Ride Home began with a single mission – help Nebraskans avoid drinking and driving by paying for their cab fares, so they can safely get home to their friends and loved ones.
In the 25 years since, the Safe Ride Home program has provided tens of thousands of free cab rides and has saved an untold number of lives. The success of the program has led us to expand it to include Safe Rides Home over St. Patrick’s Day and for victims of Domestic Violence all year long.
Help us keep our roads and communities safe from drunk and impaired drivers by being responsible this holiday season, and taking a free cab ride home – on us.
