Little Rock’s Yellow Cab opened a brand new headquarters Thursday, and announced a year-long initiative aimed at keeping drunk drivers off the streets.

In 2005, more than 200 Arkansans died in alcohol-related accidents. Yellow Cab Company hopes to lower those numbers with its Safe Ride Home program.

It is a problem bars and restaurants like Gusano's face year-round, but especially during the holidays--what to do with customers too drunk to drive home.

So when Gusano's heard about Yellow Cab Company's Safe Ride Home Program, the restaurant knew it wanted to participate.

(Samuel Johnson, Gusano’s Head Bartender) "I think it will keep people who are intoxicated off the streets--it's safer for the community, and it's better all around for everyone."

Announced during Thursday's grand opening of Yellow Cab's new headquarters, Safe Ride Home will operate throughout the year, and offer a free cab ride home to restaurant and bar patrons who have had too much to drink.

Here's how it works: Either the customer or manager can request the cab service. The customer's keys are placed in a Safe Ride Home envelope and given to the cab driver, who will return them when the customer is dropped off at their home.

For Yellow Cab, the program is a community service.

(Ellis Houston, Yellow Cab) "We're looking at all the various things we can do, and this came right to the forefront of something we can give back to the community that has supported us."

Representative of Mothers Against Drunk Driving call the program a great resource.

(Teresa Belew, MADD) "It's wonderful that a corporate partner would come forward--with a program that they don't have to do--in order to save lives in a community."

Safe Ride Home will be available at various restaurants and bars throughout Little Rock and North Little Rock.
