Funeral home offering free burial for those who plan to drink, drive on New Year’s Eve
A local funeral home is doing what it can to keep people from drinking and driving on New Year’s Eve.
Between now and noon on Thursday, drivers can visit McGuire, Jennings and Miller Funeral Home on North Broad Street and sign a contract stating they plan to drink or use drugs and drive on New Year’s Eve. If they are then killed in a wreck while operating a vehicle on Thursday, the funeral home will bury them for free.
Services they pledge to provide include a casket, grave space, limousine and preparation of remains.
Funeral home officials said the program, called “Operation Stop and Think” is designed to save lives by making people think before they act.
