Police Taxi raises awareness of DUI costs

LANCASTER -- Lancaster police have launched a new drunk-driving prevention initiative.

The Police Taxi is a mobile message board reminding observers that there are other options available instead of driving while under the influence. One way it accomplishes this goal is by listing the cost of one ride compared to the other ride.

A DUI will result in a ride in a police car and will cost upwards of $10,500 when considering legal fees, court costs, insurance increases, etc.  On the other hand, a responsible drinker would choose instead to ride in a taxi that would cost them, on average, $20. The total average costs of a DUI are listed on the hood of the vehicle.

The Police Taxi is available to attend any event, activity, social gathering, training, etc. free of charge. A member of the DUI Council of Lancaster County can deliver it to your activity where it can serve its purpose. Not to mention the ride to and from your event, when its message will reach another group – motorists.

To schedule your event, contact the Center for Traffic Safety at 800-955-7233 or email barbzortman@gmail.comPolice Taxi raises awareness of DUI costs
