MONROE - To help save lives, bar patrons can get free rides home after long nights of libations thanks to the Saferide program, sponsored by the Tavern League of Wisconsin. Saferide works as a voucher system where patrons can get a free ride home if they live in the Monroe area, with cab fare charged to the program. The statewide program covers all but 12 counties in Wisconsin and is utilized by area taverns with licensed cab drivers or volunteers drivers.
