MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – As 2015 approaches, people across Middle Georgia are preparing to celebrate. 

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones says he is doing his part to keep drunk drivers off the road.  This is the second year Jones is offering to drive intoxicated downtown Macon party-goers home.

"I don’t want them under the wheel, I don’t want them stranded, and I definitely don’t want them walking home at 4:00 in the morning," Jones said.

Jones tells us he is not using any taxpayer money for the rides.  All of the costs are coming out of his own pocket.

If you are celebrating New Year’s Eve in downtown Macon and need a ride home between 12:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m., call Jones at (478) 256-6716.  He will come pick you up at your location.
