The Winnebago County's NYE Ride Home Program is being called a success.

Drunk Driving

Does hitting a goal number mean it was a success, does the number of people that at least called the number mean it was successful?

Obviously the program was designed to reduce the number of drunk drivers on the road. With so much travel on the roads during the holidays, you want those crowded streets safe.

According to My Stateline the total number of calls for rides home was 25. While realistically you would like to see numbers in the 100's, 25 people home safe and 25 people too drunk to drive off the road is a darn good thing.

Thank you to Winnebago County for keeping the New Years Eve "free rides home" going for 36 years.
