The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office says their annual New Year’s Eve “Ride Home Program” was a success.

Sheriff’s Police say 25 individuals called police for a ride home between 11 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and 4 a.m. on New Year’s Day. The program is designed to reduce the number of intoxicated drivers on the road while making the holiday and roadways safer for everyone.

It was the 36th year the Sheriff’s Office offered free rides home for New Year’s.
