Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day, a time when many partake of too many adult beverages. If this happens to you tomorrow, Dr. Gridlock with the Washington Post reports that SoberRide is available, including here in Loudoun County.

According to the Post, as part of an effort to curb drunken driving, the Washington Regional Alcohol Program will be sponsoring free cab rides on St. Patrick's Day. The St. Patty's Day SoberRide will be available in Loudoun County -- as well as Prince William, Fairfax and Arlington counties and the District of Columbia -- from 4 p.m. Tuesday to 4 a.m. Wednesday. People wishing to use the service can call 800-200-TAXI and get a free ride, up to what would be a $50 fare. AT&T wireless customers can also dial #TAXI.

Last year, 218 people used SoberRide to get home on St. Patrick's Day. For information, visit
