From 11:00 o'clock tonight (New Year's Eve) until 7:00 tomorrow morning (New Year's Day) free hot coffee and tea will be offered along the New York State Thruway.

McDonald's and HMS Corporation, along with Delaware North Companies, are participating in the more than forty-year tradition along the thruway.

With more than twenty-seven plazas along the road, organizers hope that it is enough to remind motorists that driving while drowsy is just as dangerous as drinking while driving.
