One way to get the message across

ROME, Ga. (AP) - December 30, 2009

A north Georgia funeral home is offering a free funeral to those planning to drink and drive this New Year's Eve.

Would-be party-goers have to sign a contract with the McGuire, Jennings and Miller Funeral Home in Rome stating they're planning to booze it up.

If they die in a New Year's crash, the funeral home will give them a free burial.

Officials of the funeral home say they hope the offer will get people thinking about the dangers of drinking and driving.
