Law enforcement officials are hoping that new prepaid card for cab fare will put a dent in drunken driving cases in the Omaha area.

The I Care Cab Fare is a prepaid gift card that's accepted by Omaha area cab companies.

The card costs as little as $20, but those purchased through January will come with an additional $5.

Sarpy County Sheriff Jeff Davis says the card takes away any excuse to drive drunk.

The cards can be bought at any SAC Federal Credit Union.
