AKRON: The annual Life Ride program to reduce fatalities from drunken driving is running each day from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. through New Year's Eve.
Life Ride — in its 26th season — will provide free cab rides home for Akron-area residents who have had too much to drink and should not be driving during the holiday season.
Persons in need of Life Ride should call 330-376-7433 and Life Ride will have a taxi sent to the place of business and provide transportation home. The rides are from businesses to home only.
Life Ride is sponsored by radio stations WAKR (1590-AM), WONE (97.5-FM) and WQMX (94.9-FM), along with Budweiser, the House of LaRose, NECA/IBEW, Circle K, Firestone Tire and Service Centers and Ganley Ford. Life Ride is supported by City Yellow Cab Co. and InfoLine.
