Perks for designated drivers

Continue reading below

The Police Department’s has renewed its designated driver program after a successful first year. “It went very well,” said police Lieutenant Nick Zeoli, with all 15 of the town’s licensed restaurants and pubs participating. They provide free nonalcoholic drinks to designated drivers in parties of two or more, he said, and the drivers in return take responsibility for getting the others home safely. According to Zeoli, the goal is to keep impaired drivers off the roads to begin with and establish a working relationship between licensed establishments and the police. For more information, call Zeoli or Sergeant Peter Chernicki at 781-871-3890.
