Hundreds of people took advantage of Albany County’s Safe Ride program over New Year’s Eve.

In numbers just released today, authorities say 331 taxi cabs were dispatched to help partiers get home safely.

Despite that, ten people were arrested for DWI.

There were also two alcohol-related crashes.

That's up from six arrests and no crashes last year.

The law firm of Martin, Harding and Mazzotti sponsored the free service.
