Thank you for posting this. A girl I used to work with in college actually killed someone 6 months ago while drinking and driving (he was crossing the street and she didn’t stop in time). She’s facing at least 8 years in prison. It is never worth it to get behind the wheel after you’ve been drinking.

I’ll be sure to spread the message via Facebook with the phone number. Hope everyone has a happy and safe celebration!!

Thanks for sharing…. I’ve heard rumors this is only in certain states, do you know if that’s true?

@alyssa742: I have seen people posting such on FB but I dont see anything on their website ..which seems surprising if this was true.

@alyssa742: Canada has several volunteer agencies that do this during the Holiday season.  In BC it’s called Operation Red Nose, but I’m sure there’d be something similar where you are.  Three volunteers would be assigned to your case.  One to drive your car, one to navigate, and another following in their own vehicle to pick up the driver/navigator from your destination back to the next caller.

My google search for what it’s called in NB isn’t coming up with anything, but if you call your local police they probably know.

ETA: You probably know this, but I would recommend giving them a call early in the day, as the evening will likely be a gong show.  The call-taker might have more time to do a couple minutes research/ask around to get the info for you.

@Hedgie – Darling Husband and I are both off New Year’s Eve for the first time in the history of our relationship so I’m super happy to have him safely at home tonight.  What you guys do is greatly appreciated, and I hope your night is uneventful as possible as well!

Thanks for posting that. I had a very good friend day get hit by a drunk driver, several years ago on New Years. My friend had not been drinking at all, by the person who hit her was twice the legal limit. She lived, but she the accident incapacitated her for months, and still has a noticable limp and shoulder issues. I would not wish what she went through on anyone. We have party plans but I am sticking to a sip of champagne at midnight at thats it. Last year I got to drink and my guy drove, so this year it is my turn.

This is why Fiance and I refuse to go out.  We don’t have to be on the roads with anyone who takes this chance.  I’m hoping a lot of police are out tonight.  It’d be sad to lose someone innocent for another’s mistake.

@alyssa742: Looks like it’s Operation Red Nose (or Operation Nez Rouge for our Quebecois friends) right across the country.  Phone number in St. John’s is (506) 693-6810.

Here’s a link for the facebooking needs of the Canadian bees!

A lot of cities have their own servicesa too! I know St. Louis has a company where the person will ride a bike to the bar or club you are at and drive you and your car home for you!

Drunk driving is no joke. My grandfather killed himself and an innocent man in a drunk driving accident. It’s pointless, stupid and irresponsible.

Be safe tonight, bees!

@MrsEdamame: thanks for posting that! I know someone on my Facebook had mentioned that Illinois doesn’t offer it, so I was curious.
