Yellow Cab of Sacramento, Berg Injury Lawyers partner to offer free Halloween rides home

Yellow Cab of Sacramento, Berg Injury Lawyers partner to offer free Halloween rides home

Yellow Cab of Sacramento is partnering with Berg Injury Lawyers to offer free, safe rides home on Halloween night for people in downtown/midtown Sacramento.

Halloween has become a particularly dangerous night for both motorists and pedestrians. Because of the high number of drunk drivers on the roads and the increased presence of children out trick-or-treating, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration advises impaired motorists to use sober ride programs and other transportation alternatives.

Surge pricing will likely be prevalent by ride-sharing companies on Halloween night. However, through Berg’s “Sober Free Cab Ride Home Program,” Halloween revelers can hail a Yellow Cab for free by calling 444-2222 or using the new Curb App. Visit www.yellowcabsacramento.com  to download the Curb App.

Regular daily construction work from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday is expected to begin September 14, 2015. Two travel lanes in each of the eastbound and westbound directions will remain open at all times. This is with the exception of limited night work that will require reducing the number of open lanes to one per direction as needed. The project is expected to continue through the fall of 2016. ...
