DENVER — A local law firm is reviving its annual tradition of getting Halloween revelers home safely.

Michael Sawaya of Sawaya Law Firm is offering its “Free Cab Ride Program” for those who have had a little too much to drink.

This is the eighth year the Colorado personal injury law firm invests in the program as a way to save lives and reduce injuries from drunk drivers.

According to Sawaya, the program has been very popular among Denver’s most avid party-goers, but the real message is sometimes misconstrued.

Many people think it is a service to benefit the drinkers, but the bottom line is it removes drunk drivers from the roads.

The free rides began Friday night and will continue through Monday.

To take advantage, call a cab, get a ride from one location to your home, pay the cab driver and send the bill to the Sawaya Law Firm for reimbursement.

There are some restrictions. It’s only available to those 21 years old and older; it’s good for a one-way ride to the residence; and the maximum value is $35.

Riders must send the cab receipt and copy of a valid ID to
