TULSA, Oklahoma -

A Green Country organization is continuing its grassroots effort to keep drunk drivers off the roads this holiday season.

It's called Missy's Keys4Cabs and was inspired by Melissa Eubanks.

She was killed in May 2010 by a drunk driver at 6th Street and Peoria in Tulsa.

Missy's family and friends hope the program will save others' lives by giving people an alternative to getting behind the wheel drunk.

Participating businesses provide intoxicated customers with a voucher for a free cab ride home.

"It's a lot less expensive than a DUI or the devastating effects of killing someone or hurting someone or yourself," said Keys4Cabs President Tim Barraza.

The nonprofit announced its 2013 membership drive Tuesday afternoon.

December is National Impaired Driving Awareness month.
