Forget A Taxi

It’s late. You’re wasted. Who do you call? No, not your cousin Jimmy. It’s the Shalimar Police Department, of course:

Residents in [Shalimar] can call the police for a ride home if they have had too many drinks. The new service was posted in the town’s online newsletter Jan. 2, according to the Northwest Florida Daily News. The Shalimar police will take residents who are too drunk to drive home from as far as 25 miles away.

The article later goes on to say:

Police Chief John E. Cash said he’s heard other departments offering a similar service, at least during the holiday season.

Coming soon to an Ale House near you? Hmm…
