You Drink. They Drive.

Scooter With the number of drunk driving accidents and deaths caused by drunk driving rising every year, it's a surprise that services like this haven't sprouted up in cities across the world sooner. When I was in London, I noticed a poster in a bathroom at a pub for ScooterMan, a service that, if you drink too much and you drove to your destination, they'll get you home ... safely. ScooterMan, like LA-based Home James, is a service that utilizes collapsable scooters that fit in the trunk of your car. The idea is that when you're too wasted to drive (which is pretty much whenever you've had 2-3 drinks -- according to a recent billboard I saw that read: "driving buzzed is driving drunk" -- apparently someone dies every 30 minutes as a result of drunk driving) you call this service, which then dispatches one of its drivers to fetch you, who puts the scooter in the back and drives you home. This way, you and your car arrive home in one piece. Sure, it's going to cost you -- but the price of getting home in one piece is seemingly worth it. Just think of all the money you'll save on legal fees when you don't get pulled for a DUI.
