A Moultrie towing company is offering free rides tonight to prevent people from drinking and driving. They're also showing their appreciation for public safety workers.

The owner of Warner Recovery is encouraging people in Colquitt County to take advantage of his service and says there is no excuse for drinking and driving.

Workers at Warner Recovery are gearing up their tow trucks to pick up drivers who might have one too many drinks tonight in an effort to get them home safely and prevent their cars from looking like this.

"If you're in Colquitt County and you've had too much to drink,” said John Warner, Warner Recovery Owner. “We're going to pick you up. We're going to pick your car up. We gone take you home and it's not going to cost you a dime."

It's the second year they've offered the free service. It was pretty popular last year.

"We had about thirty people that we took home,” said Warner. “We had about 15 cars."

Workers at Warner Recovery are volunteering their time to make sure lives aren't lost.

"Everybody you encounter tonight if you call us is out here for one reason and that's for you,” said Warner.

They're also firing up the grill to feed dozens of public safety workers in the city and county to show their appreciation for all that they do.

"They're getting such a bad rap,” said Warner. “Everybody is bashing the police these days. There's no reason for that. They out there doing their job, doing the best they can and just don't get appreciated like they should."

Warner hopes drivers will show appreciation for their own lives by making the right decision not to drink and drive.

Warner Recovery will be feeding public safety workers until 2:00 a.m. You can contact Warner Recovery at 229-449-5632.
