LITTLE ROCK, AR-- Drunk driving victim want drivers to be safe for New Years Eve Celebrations.

His mom now helps him with everyday tasks.

"He's just been slowly making a recovery. It's been a slow process," said Pamela Ware.

What happened to trevor is the main reason why he and his mom encourage people to make good choices while celebrating the holidays.

"It's not the issue of drinking. It's the issue of responsibility. Trevor is paying for someone else's. So make your choice ahead of time," said P. Ware.

Managers at JHook towing are offering people a ride home, with their vehicles in tow, for a discounted price for new years.

"We are going to take you and your car home," said General Manager Tim Moody.
