Law firm offers ride reimbursement on 'biggest bar night of the year'

It is one of the biggest bar nights of the year and that means if you go out, you need to find a safe way home.

Police are also stepping up their patrols as well, looking for drunk drivers.

Michigan State Police and local law enforcement agencies are already out in full force - and as a nice incentive and public service, a local law firm will actually reimburse you for your Uber or taxi ride.

"I'm seeing the police everywhere," said Dean Bach. "Michigan State Police, local police, they're everywhere already. At the end of the day I think they’re showing, 'Hey we're here. don't tempt us.'"

That's why the owner of Dino's bar has already informed his entire staff to keep an eye on customers who've had one too many drinks.

"They keep their eye out, they’re well-trained," Bach said. "Everybody in this industry is supposed to be trained so they keep their eye out offer you a cup of coffee or something to eat.

"Try to take it easy. We understand we're ready to rock and roll for the holidays, but let's be safe at the same time."

Michigan State Police tells FOX 2 the number of fatalities on the roadways has gone down in the past two years during the thanksgiving holiday. There were six this time last year.

In order to keep people from drinking and driving, the David Christensen Law Firm in Southfield has promised to reimburse your Uber or taxi ride up to 35 dollars.

"We are a personal injury law firm and we handle serious auto accidents,"  said David Christensen.  "For decades I have been seeing wreckage they drunk drivers can have on families and people all over this community and I learned tonight happens to be the biggest bar night of the year."

The Uber and taxi reimbursement program will last from 7 p.m. until 4 a.m.

To take part in the Safe Rides Home program, take a cab or uber get a receipt and email it with a copy of your driver’s license to David Christensen Law.
