Towing home for the holidays
BATON ROUGE - Local companies are getting behind the wheel this Christmas, so others won't drink and drive.
Roadrunner Towing says they'll have eight people on hand for the holidays. They're towing drivers and the vehicles home for free.
Roadrunner is available starting Christmas Eve, through New Year's Day. If you've been drinking, all you have to do is give them a call, and they'll pick you up and take you home.
The company says it's doing their part to keep the community safe this Christmas.
"We see devastation, people's lives are completely destroyed. If we can do anything to help prevent this type of thing happening we're happy to do it," said Judy Smart, president of Roadrunner Towing.
The Mockler Beverage Company is also providing this service until New Year's Day.
