ALBANY, N.Y. -- The Albany County Sheriff's office is making sure drunk drivers are staying off the roads this New Year’s Eve. This year is the 29th annual Safe Ride Program.

Between the hours of 10 p.m. on New Year's Eve and 2 a.m. on New Year's day, a free ride is available for anyone, anywhere in the county.

People who have been drinking and need a ride home can call 1-800-LAW-1010. Or you can dial **LAW on your cell phone.

Since the start of the program, there hasn't been an alcohol-related fatality in the county on New Year's Eve and officials hope to keep it that way. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
