In an attempt to cut down on violence, drunks in the UK are being offered free taxi rides home on the weekends. The Daily Mail has more:

Pre-paid taxis are to be provided late on Fridays and Saturdays in the hope that drinkers will avoid getting caught up in trouble as they walk home.

The scheme is being trialled for three months by police in Watton, Norfolk, and if it proves successful it could be adopted by other forces around the country.
