URBANA -- A local company is trying to make it easier for people to stay safe on the roads. Tatman's Towing will offer free rides home and they'll even take your car back with you. Their drivers took care of about a dozen people last year. It was a lot snowier then, but regardless of the weather, owner Jim Hampton says they're happy to help.

"Call us and let my dispatcher know where they're at," said Hampton. "We'll take them home. We won't take them from party to party. They're just going to go from where ever they're at and we'll take them home."

Tatman's offered free rides home for more than 25 years. They offer the service from 9 PM Tuesday until 3 AM on Wednesday. It's on a first come, first served basis. If you want a ride, call 217-328-2424.
