Re: Kelowna, B.C., dubious winner as drunk-driving capital of Ca

I'm pleased to see that Ottawa is a the bottom of the chart, according to this cbc.ca article on the Statscan numbers. I wonder if it has to do with now having TWO Operation Red Nose teams in operation in December (one for each side of the river) and the growing popularity of both services like Responsible Choice (commercial service like ORN) and towing companies that will take your car home for you for slightly more than a cab fare.

Responsible Choice is probably the predominant factor. There are a percentage of people who will drive regardless of the penalty or whether there is a ride check simply because they need their vehicle in the morning.

Here in the Peterborough city and county the OPP will pull people over indiscriminately if you are out driving in the evening or night whether you are displaying any signs of impairment or not.

There is a comparable company to Responsible Choice here that has driven thousands of people home and no doubt kept our numbers here low as well.

There are services here that will not only drive you home, but drive your car home so you have it in the morning, too.

That's what ORN, Responsible Choice and towing companies are doing: take driver and car home. The latter two are 'for profit', but the cost is less than two taxi fares (ie/ home and back to get the car the next day).

Which is what we are discussing by way of Responsible Choice and the comparable company in Peterborough.

You alluded to people not using these services because they needed their car, which wouldn't happen if they also transported your car for you.

No, I stated.

I read what you said, there's no need to repeat. The groups that I were referring to take you and your car home the same night. In other words, you have your car in the morning.

So then why would needing their car in the morning be an issue?

I was going to comment about educating people on the availability of these services if they didn't know they exist, but I figured that much was a given. Guess not.

It goes to their motivation.

Although well intended, as it was brought up in two previous posts, your input was superfluous.
