Free taxi rides will help keep roads safe on N.Y.E.


With New Year’s Eve celebrations just a few days away, many will soon be celebrating with a drink or two.

One local law firm is helping out, and making sure they don’t see you in court on an OVI charge.

Members of the Gold, Khourey and Turak Law Firm in Moundsville are holding their annual taxi program for Marshall and Ohio Counties.

It’s called “Booze and cruise, you’ll lose.”

Attorney Christopher Turak said there are many legal consequences you can face if charged with an OVI.

So if you’re out celebrating on NYE and you think you’ve had one too many, call BMG Transport.

They’ve got you covered for free.

“We’re covering all of Marshall County and all of Ohio County. We’re going to have 12 cabs, possibly 13, out, so call in. Say ‘Booze, cruise, you’ll lose’ and you’ll get a free ride. But we’re not going to take you bar hopping. We’ll take you from the bar to your home,” said Brian Giles, owner of BMG Transport.

“We just want to help people get home safely on NYE and make the roads a little safer for the community. After all, we all drive. So anything we can do to help people get home, be safe and avoid any tragedies, it’s a no brainer for us,” added Christopher Turak, attorney at GKT.

The free cab rides home begin at 10 p.m. New Year’s Eve until 2 a.m. New Year’s Day.

If you’re interested, call BMG Transport at (304) 232-1313.
