Our Sober Ride vehicle is part of a community awareness program to remind people of the dangers of and the options available to avoid drinking then driving. During certain holidays (St. Patricks, 4th of July etc.), in partnership with local restaurants, company sponsors and cab companies, free cab rides are provided to promote the use of cabs after drinking. The vehicle is also called the "Chooser Cruiser" which emphasizes that it is the individual's choice to take a ride in a cab or to be arrested for DUI and then riding in a police car. The vehicle is displayed at fairs, festivals and other community events to promote avoiding driving after drinking.
