Cab drivers to have busy New Year's Eve

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - For folks who do drink a little too much on New Year's Eve and can't find a designated driver, there's another place to go for a safe ride home. You can always call a cab.

Taxi drivers are getting ready for lots of calls Friday night on one of their busiest nights of the year. Local cab company employees say they're ready to help New Year's Eve partiers get back home.

"We'll be glad to pick you up and take you where you need to go and pick you up and carry you back home and make sure you get there safe and sound," said Linda Culpepper, a dispatcher with Yellow Cab in Hattiesburg.

"And if you don't call us, please call somebody. Don't drink and drive," Culpepper said.
