There will be free cab rides offered in th Washington-metro area this Halloween in order to thwart drunk-driving. The Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) is the D.C. area charity that is coordinating the SoberRide program. Nearly half (48%) of all Halloween traffic deaths in the United States are caused by drunk drivers, so WRAP aims to deter drunk driving.
