BALTIMORE (AP) — People in Baltimore who do a little too much celebrating on Cinco de Mayo can take advantage of a program offering free cab rides.

For the first time, AAA Mid-Atlantic, the Maryland Department of Transportation and Yellow Cab are partnering to offer free cab rides on Cinco de Mayo.

The Tipsy?Taxi! program runs from 4 p.m. Thursday to 4 a.m. Friday. The free rides are available to anyone age 21 or over who has been drinking in a Baltimore city restaurant or bar. The rides are free, up to a $50 limit.

Those wishing to use the service must call 877-963-TAXI.

    Why can’t these Hispanics be held to the same law that all of the other citizens must do. This is a blatant disgusting suck up for a group that takes more than they return to the community. Where were the cabs on St.Patttys, Italian day, polish day, German day?

    When they call will they have to press 1 for Spanish?

    when are u people going to learn. this is maryland, illegal immigrants and their children are more important than all of us life long Maryland residents who are law abiding, income tax paying citizens. everyone should visit a Maryland District Court and sit thru an entire docket. guaranteed to have at least one illegal hispanic immigrant who is charged with a serious/arrestable traffic violation. so funny how the defense attorney’s are required to advise them that the case may affect there immigration/deportation status. defense attorney’s should be required to follow the advisement up with the following statement: “but this is Maryland so it will have no affect on ur immigration/deportation status.”

    Let them stagger home drunk. Hopefully a few will get hit & run over & those that make it, will lose some of that weight from their fat belly’s.
