It’s New Year’s Eve, which means I’m terrified of getting on the roads past 6 p.m. and many law enforcement agencies will be on the streets en masse to bust motorists who’ve had a tee many martoonies.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, fatal traffic crashes involving alcohol spike in December around the holidays; on average, one person was killed in a fatal drunk driving crash every 57 minutes in 2014, according to the safety agency.

Which means, if you’re going to party, let’s find you a ride first.

Many major metro areas are offering free bus services starting at various hours. Here, at TTAC’s Denver bureau, RTD began free bus and light rail service at 7 a.m. continuing through New Year’s Day.

I realize that many of you don’t live in Denver, so here’s a list of the top 25 major metro areas in the U.S. and their public transportation systems, including applicable promotions for party goers.

Of course, you may not live in or near one of the other cities, but I’m guessing there’s probably a bus or shuttle service nearby. And if there isn’t, you could always call up an Uber or Lyft — or even just a good ol’ taxi.

Basically, what I’m saying is here are at least 30 reasons not to drink and drive tonight.
