Don't Drink and Drive, Call a Cab on NYE

Area cab company numbers to call after your night out.

New Years Eve is one of the most dangerous holidays on the roads in Illinois, so we thought we'd share some resources for you to avoid having to get behind the wheel. 

Oak Park and River Forest police have launched their campaign to crack down on drunk drivers through the weekend after New Years, according to a news release from the Village of Oak Park. 

The crackdown is part of a federally funded effort through the Illinois Department of Transportation’s Division of Traffic Safety that will help pay for off-duty officers to augment on-duty patrols. The enforcement effort runs concurrently with a media campaign that reminds motorists to Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket, according to the release.

Police will focus on reducing accidents by arresting drunk drivers and stopping drivers who aren't wearing a seatbelt. 

Here are a few numbers to call if you need a cab this weekend:

  • Red Cab: (708)-848-1010 or reserve online here.
  • Blue Cab: (708) 583-6900, website
  • American Taxi: (708) 424-7878, website
