El Paso - Law enforcement officers will be out in full force this holiday season looking for drunk drivers.
Mother's Against Drunk Driving, or MADD, says one out of every three people will be involved in an alcohol related crash.
Last year 879 people were killed by drunk drivers between Thanksgiving and New Years in the U.S.
"This is 100% preventable. The choice is in your hands. You have all heard the clear message of 'don't drink and drive,' however I am here to say that if you do drink and drive you will end up behind bars or in a body bag. Make the right choice," said Grace Talamantes, who's daughter, Valerie Talamantes, was killed by a drunk driver in 2007.
This year, Sun City Cab will be giving out free rides to those who can't find a designated driver.
This is the sixth year Sun City Cab is offering the free ride program during the holidays.
You can call Sun City Cab Co. at 544-2211 if you've had to much to drink and you need a ride.
