Don’t be a turkey and drive while impaired this Thanksgiving: Use a designated driver service

October 4th, 2012  |  Insurance

Thanksgiving is often considered the first of the many get-togethers among family and friends in the lead up to the holiday season. And, with most social events comes the risk of drinking and driving. Most of the parties or dinners you will attend will serve alcohol. Therefore, as a safe and responsible driver you need to think ahead and plan out your night so no one drives while impaired.

The good news is that there is no shortage of options for people that want to have a few drinks during the course of the Thanksgiving weekend. These options include:

  • Assigning a designated driver

  • Taking public transportation

  • Taking a taxi

  • Staying the night at a friend or family members

The truth is that sometimes no matter how much you plan you can find yourself in a situation where you decided to drive to a party and then had a few too many drinks once you arrive. Most people in this situation don’t want to leave their car overnight. Fortunately for them, there are many designated driver services that they can use. These services will not only make sure that you get home safe and sound; they will also make sure your car gets there as well.

How do these services work?

  • When you are ready to leave your current location all you have to do is call the service provider and give them your address.

  • They will drive to your location pick you and your car up and drive you home.

  • Most offer a flat fee for services.

  • Some of the companies allow you to book in advance.

Here is a list of designated driver services to consider:

While these are only a few of the designated driver services offered across Ontario, services are offered in most cities across the province. So, if you find yourself in a situation where you drove and then decided to drink one you arrived, there are always options available for you. Don’t drink and drive!
