‘Tis the week for holiday celebrations, festivities and DUI Checkpoints.
It’s easy to get comfortable and relaxed with all the great company surrounding you this season – mix that with alcohol and it’s time to Hail a Cab or a Sedan service. If the piggyback, MOM TAXI or Designated Driver aren’t an option for your door-to-door service, then bookmark this page and remember a sober and safe ride home is always just a phone call away. Who knows, maybe you’ll land a CASH CAB around town. Below we have collected a group of recommended services from LOCALs in the know as well as the DUI Checkpoints scheduled for this week in North Delaware. While CASH is always KING for your added convenience, note that most(not all) services today accept Visa/MC/AMEX.
Please don’t drink and drive. Celebrate the holidays responsibly. For more information, visit ‘Tis the Season to Hail A Cab!
