Get a free cab

There are a variety of free cab programs accessible in cities for New Year’s because so many cities are worried about accident fatalities. This the best way to save lives and cash; maybe the city in your area is willing to cover your cab fare on the night to keep you out of the driver’s seat.

It is not like you will pay the same for a cab as you would for a payment on an automobile from Michael's Toyota of Bellevue.

It surely pays to be responsible and pay the cab fare anyway. If you get caught with a DUI or with vehicular manslaughter charges, you will need cash to pay a lawyer anyway.
