One East Tennessee business is looking to give East Tennesseans a safe and free ride home from bars this holiday season.

Bradford Medical Services created the "free ride home for impaired drivers" to keep you safe during the holidays.

The company treats alcohol and drug addiction every day and they know impaired driving is out there. They contracted West Knox Taxi to pick up people for free rides.

Ben Young with Bradford Health Services went around to bars around Knoxville handing out flyers for this service.

On the flyer, it outlines the terms of your ride. These rides can take you up to 30 miles away.

"The first week has been incredible. We have received probably just over a dozen phone calls just this week for folks out in the Knoxville area who have gotten a cab ride home," said Young.

If you find yourself in need of one of these rides, call Bradford Health Services at 865-693-9326. The rides will only take you home. This service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It began on December 15th and goes through New Years Eve.
