People like to make excuses for drinking and driving, but really there’s no excuse for putting lives at risk
LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2015
BeMyDD (Be My Designated Driver), the nation’s largest designated driver service, today announced that it has published a new infographic to discourage drunk driving. Titled “No Excuses,” the infographic highlights some common excuses made to justify driving under the influence, while also highlighting the risks of this action. A complimentary copy of the infographic can be downloaded at http://www.bemydd.com/noexcuses.
“People like to make excuses for drinking and driving, but really there’s no excuse for putting lives at risk,” said Arthur Simanovsky, BeMyDD president and CEO. “If you use a designated driver or service like BeMyDD, you’ll be able to have fun in a socially responsible way when you are out at bars, restaurants, or events – no excuses needed.”
Despite significant gains in education and prevention, drinking and driving is still a serious problem. Every 52 minutes, someone in the United States dies at the hands of a drunk driver, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. One in three traffic fatalities are in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, and nighttime is especially dangerous – more than three-fourths (76%) of all drunk-driving fatalities occur between 6 pm and 5:59 am, as published by TrafficSafetyMarketing.gov.
BeMyDD offers a solution to driving under the influence, with a range of affordable services where professional, experienced chauffeurs operate the customer’s own vehicle. An alternative to ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft, BeMyDD services are priced at pre-determined rates free of surge pricing or other surprise fees.
ByMyDD provides two services that reduce the dangers associated with drinking and driving, both of which can be reserved through the website at BeMyDD.com, by calling +1 (877) U-BeMyDD (823-6933), or by downloading and using the mobile app (iOS and Android). If an individual has driven to a location and does not want to drive home, they can contact BeMyDD and request the company’s Pick-Up Service. The service costs US$25 for pick-up and US$3.45 per mile with a US$45 minimum. As part of BeMyDD’s Pick-Up Service, the company will dispatch two drivers, one to take the client and their car home and a second to follow behind to retrieve the BeMyDD driver.
In addition, BeMyDD also offers a Personal Driver Service, where a professional driver arrives at the client’s home and chauffeurs them anywhere they want go using the client’s own car. Making multiple stops if necessary, the driver then waits in the car and takes the client back home when they are ready. The Personal Driver Service costs US$14-US$19.50/hour, depending on geography, and has a three-hour minimum. Reservations for this service must be made in advance.
