Who to Call When You Can’t Drive Home

New Year’s Eve is a time to appreciate everything that happened this year and to celebrate family and friends. It’s also a time to toast to 2018; Speculate what amazing things might happen, who you might meet, and where life will take you. Those toasts always seem to add up on New Year’s Eve though, so it’s important to know your end-of-the-night game plan. Drunk driving is not only a bad idea, it’s also illegal and could hurt more than just you. Here are some options you should think about when planning how you’re going to get home from your fun New Year’s Eve night:

Call a Taxi: This might cost you a little bit of money, but it’s worth it! Here are a few taxi services to call in Springfield:

All Around Cab: (417) 536 – 3333

Springfield Yellow Cab Company: (417) 862 – 5511

Springfield Royal Taxi: (417) 733 – 3701

Call an Uber: A popular option that can be relatively cheap – and you can download the app and have one sent your way in no time! You can also track your Uber to see exactly how far away they are.

Call a Lyft: This is another option very similar to Uber. You can download their app and order a car to come pick you up quickly as well!

Call a sober friend or family member: We all have friends/relatives that either don’t like to drink, or would rather make sure everyone else is getting home safe. Get a ride from one of these awesome friends instead of driving yourself – and be sure to thank them!

Use Public Transportation: All around Springfield are bus routes that can take you almost anywhere. Make sure you pay attention to where they are going, though! You can use the bus system to get to your party, but probably not back home after the party is over. Check out the night schedule here:

Stay at the Party: Hosts would rather see you stay safe in their home than driving home drunk! If you have no way of going home, just stay put. There’s no sense in making a bad decision when you can sleep it off in a safe place.

Host a Party at your Own Home: This way, you don’t have to worry about leaving! Plus, you can sleep in your own bed.

We want you to have a safe and happy New Years Eve! Remember to always drink responsibly! If you do end up with a ticket from New Years please visit Tads Tickets so we can help you with that.
