Central Beds Council is reminding partygoers to follow some simple tips to ensure their safety.
If you are walking home keep to well-lit main roads where possible and avoid alleys, wasteground and wooded areas. Wherever possible try to walk home with someone you know or try to share a lift.
If you do decided to take a cab it is always important to make sure that a lift home is a legitimate taxi. Drivers should have their licence on display and all hackney taxis and black cabs display a taxi sign on the roof of their vehicle, a numbered carriage plate near the rear bumper and a smaller numbered carriage plate in the front windscreen.
Private hire vehicles, which can not be hailed in the street, will display a numbered private hire plate on the rear bumper and a smaller numbered plate in the front windscreen.
