We've all been there. It's New Year's Eve, your semi-responsible friend promises to be the designated driver and stay sober.

An hour or so after the balloons drop, it's time to go home and your semi-responsible friend is now completely irresponsible and wasted.

How do you get home?

Well, you can always call a cab or an Uber, but it will cost you some coin.

Did I mention you lost your wallet?

Now what do you do? Do you play Rock, Paper, Scissors to determine who is least drunk and drive home?

The answer is a resounding NO!

You call the Winnebago County Sheriff's Deputies at 815-639-4674 for a free ride home.

This is the 36th year the deputies are offering free rides home, according to WREX.

Be safe this holiday season and enjoy 2017!
