A lot of people consume alcohol on New Year's Eve and into New Year's Day morning. And because of that fact It's also one of the busiest days for cab companies, Uber drivers, and Lyft drivers. It's also a busy day for local law enforcement as they set up stop DWI checkpoints throughout the area.

According to WBNG, not one DWI arrest was made in Broome County for New Years.

Undoubtedly the Schimmerling Injury Law Offices played a big part in that statistic. For the 23rd year in a row, Tom Schimmerling and his office, have been providing free safe rides home on New Year's morning to people who need a ride home.

According to the Schimmerling Injury Law Offices Facebook page, all of their Lyft codes had been used by 1:30 a.m. the system would not let them add funds to the account. The post also instructed people in need of rides home to use Lyft, Uber, or to call a cab, and they would reimburse you for the cost of your fare.

If you used one of those services between 1:30 and 4 a.m. in Broome County, you can send a copy of your receipt to the Schimmerling Injury Law Offices at 102 West Main Street Endicott, New York, 13760  and they will reimburse you.

I personally want to thank the Schimmerling Injury Law Offices for providing this service every year. I have never used the service personally, but it definitely keeps our roadways safe, which keeps our family members and friends safe. And for that, I say thank you for your generous gesture.
