Probably the largest celebration of Mexican heritage of the year happens on the 5th of May, Cinco de Mayo. That commemorates a battle fought near Puebla, Mexico in 1862.
The McDivitt Law Firm will offer free cab rides to those who aren't sober enough to drive on May 5.
"We want to prevent drunk driving and encourage everyone to celebrate Cinco de Mayo responsibly, said attorney Mike McDivitt. "If you need a safe way home call Yellow Cab and tell them the ride is on us."
Rides will be available in Colorado Springs from 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 5, through 3 a.m., on Friday, May 6.
For a free ride home within Colorado Springs city limits, call Yellow Cab of Colorado Springs at (719) 777-7777 and tell them the ride is on McDivitt Law Firm.
The program is for adults who have been drinking or who don't have a safe way home, and rides are provided to an individual's residence-not to other drinking locations. Due to the high number of ride requests on Cinco de Mayo, rides cannot be guaranteed for everyone who calls; however, every attempt will be made to accommodate all requests. Drivers have the right to use their discretion when accepting fares.
