Here are a few things I know about New Year's Eve; drinking is usually involved, and cops know it. It is definitely not a night you want to risk driving impaired, and you will likely have to wait a while to snag an Uber or Lyft ride.

If you've got big plans for New Year's Eve, and no designated driver, no worries, the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department has your back!

I realize getting a ride home in the back of a cop car is not usually a good way to end a fun night, but this one will be, and it's completely free!


Big thanks to Lamonica Beverages and the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department for making this service possible again this year!

Please, grab a piece of paper or type a note in your phone right now that includes the number 815-282-2600 so you can call for a ride if you need it Monday night. Safety first, my friends!
