Put this contact in your phone right now in case you need it New Year’s Eve: (916) 588-7758.

That’s the number for Donald’s Taxi Service in Roseville, which received a grant to provide rides home for residents in Roseville, Auburn and surrounding areas on Monday, Dec. 31.

Ride vouchers were given by Community Recovery Resources in an effort to reduce the number of impaired drivers on the road. The nonprofit health organization provides substance abuse treatment services in Nevada and Placer counties.

Community Recovery Resources also urges those celebrating the new year to:

- Designate a sober driver before celebrations begin.

- Do not provide or serve alcohol to those under the age of 21, whether at home or a retail outlet — it is against the law.

- Plan safe parties, including providing non-alcoholic drink options to guests and do not serve alcohol the last hour of the gathering.

- Be prepared to get everyone home safe in case your plans or individual circumstances change.
