From SAFE COMMUNITIES OF WOOD COUNTY
Wood County Safe Communities will again be providing free rides in Bowling Green on New Year’s Eve from 11 p.m. on Dec. 31 until the last person is home safe on New Year’s Day.
In Wood County, 21 percent of fatal crashes involve alcohol compared to 26 percent statewide. Four percent of all crashes in Wood County as well as statewide involve alcohol. We need to do whatever we can to make sure that these numbers do not increase over the New Year’s holiday.
If you are in Bowling Green, call 419-823-7765 for a ride home. We will provide rides within the city limits of Bowling Green and the surrounding 10-mile area.
Thayer Chevrolet, Wood County Committee on Aging, Wood County Hospital and Wood County Emergency Management have provided continued assistance. This program would not be possible without the coalition members, local businesses, and volunteers who give of their time to make sure this program is a success.
