And because Halloween isn’t just a kids’ holiday, Fairfax County Police will be stepping up efforts to combat drunk driving. DWI saturation patrols will be in effect at various locations throughout the county Oct. 31-Nov. 3.
Instead of driving home from the party, call SoberRide, 800-200-TAXI, for a free cab ride (up to $30) from 10 p.m. Oct. 31 to 4 a.m. Friday, Nov. 1.
