Going Out This New Year's Eve? Call A Free Cab 12-30-2010

Midland’s Shining Star Taxi is offering residents a deal they shouldn’t refuse, especially if they’ve been out drinking on New Year’s.
Beginning at midnight New Year’s morning, the company will give free rides from the bars until 4 a.m.
One requirement is that patrons must be at a bar within the Midland city limits and live in the city.
"If we get one person home safe for the year, it's well worth it,” said company owner Harold Scott. “The time, money and effort we put into it, it's well worth it."
Scott said he doesn't know or care how much the courtesy rides ares costing him. He would, however, appreciate it if those using the service would tip his drivers. If you give Shining Star a call Saturday night, be patient. The owner says they will be there, eventually.
"We usually get pretty slammed on New Year's Eve, but we try to get to everybody as quick as we can, like I say, the ride's free so, wait a little bit,” said cab driver Jon Henderson. “You can either ride with me on New Year's or see the judge the day after."
And it will be much more expensive to see the judge.
The cab company has offered the free rides for the last four years.
If you find you’re too intoxicated to drive, call them at 989-615-2038.
