Safe and Sober Program

Berg Injury Lawyers is continuously working to encourage safety and offer a helping hand in our community. Each year, lives are destroyed and families are torn apart by car accidents caused by driving under the influence. In an effort to reduce drunk driving, we offer our Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program on several holidays throughout the year.

Partners in a Legacy of Safety

The Safe and Sober Program is a partnership with two local cab companies: Luxor Cabs and Yellow Cab Company of Sacramento. Since the program’s start in 2004, we have provided more than 8,000 free rides home to members of our community.

Cinco de Mayo 2015 Free Cab Ride Home

The next Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home program will be offered on Cinco de Mayo 2015. Free rides will be available from 10 p.m. on Tuesday, May 5, through 4 a.m. on Wednesday, May 6.

For a free ride home, call one of the following cab companies and tell them the ride is on Berg Injury Lawyers:

  • San Francisco Luxor Cab: (415) 282-4141
  • Sacramento Yellow Cab Company: (916) 444-2222

Patrons must be picked up at a restaurant, hotel, or bar in downtown Sacramento or San Francisco to qualify for a free ride. You must call to arrange the free ride—you cannot hail a cab off the street. Due to the program’s popularity, a cap of $35 will be placed on each ride home. Please remember to tip your driver!
