MARIETTA, Ga. -

A metro Atlanta police department is trying to curb drinking and driving this holiday season.

The Marietta Police Department launched the "Cop Cab" campaign to help education about the literal cost of getting a DUI.

The modified Ford Crown Victoria is painted half as a police car and half as a taxi and poses the question of what how much one is willing to pay to drink and drive: $20 for a cab ride or upwards of $7,600 for a DUI arrest.

The department admits it is not the first of its kind, but is the first in the metro Atlanta area.

Sterling Auto Body Centers and Adnormous Graphics partnered with the department to help create the design and paint scheme.
