A Georgia coroner is offering free rides during New Years Eve this year.
Bibb County Coroner, Leon Jones, would rather give folks a friendly lift in his van than in his hearse later. New Years Eve, for many folks, is a time to drink and be merry. Jones is all for folks having fun, but he also wants them to be safe.
Jones told Atlanta’s 11 Alive this week, “One of the biggest things my late mamma taught me was always try to help people. The demand has gotten so big that he brought in two additional drivers this year. No one’s going to be turned down.”
Jones says that with the two additional vans this year, they’ll be able to shuttle 45 people at once. Apparently he plans to keep the shuttle going until 5 a.m.
If you live in or around Bibb County and would like to take Jones up on this service, you can call him ahead of time at 478-256-6716.
