Lea County Organization Offers Rides for the New Year

HOBBS N.M. - It's time to ring in the New Year and one Lea County organization is committed to making sure drivers stay safe.

The Lea County DWI program is sponsoring "Safe Ride." It gives partiers a ride home in case they've had too much to drink.

Tonight, three drivers, a DWI program employee, a teacher and a baseball coach are ready to pick up anyone in Lea County who needs a ride home.

It's free of charge, but they do ask you to make a donation to the DWI program.

Safe Ride runs from 10:00 tonight until 3:00 Thursday morning. You can call 575-391-2956 to schedule a ride. They ask that you allow thirty minutes for a pick-up.
