Have you ever been out at the bar, drank a little too much to drive home safely, but didn’t want to call a cab because that would mean leaving your car there overnight?
If you live in one of the major cities in California—Los Angeles, San Diego, the San Francisco Bay area (soon: San Jose and Orange County)—there’s now a way for you to safely drive home in your own car, drunk, and without any risk of getting a DUI
This innovative service is called SRS: Safe Ride Solutions. The way it works is simple: once you become a member, you can call their number at anytime of day, any day of the week, and an off-duty or retired police officer shows up and drives you home in your own car.
SRS drivers can also pick you up at your house and drive you around in your own car for an entire evening.
According to their website, “Safe Ride Solutions is a collaborative DUI prevention program developed by police officers, professional athletes, and business professionals to address the real world problem of DUI.”
And here’s what they have to say about their drivers. They are:
—Hand picked, customer service oriented, off duty law enforcement professionals with at least 3 years experience who work in the city.
—Professional drivers with advance driving skills.
—CPR and first aid certified.
—Experienced in dealing with emergency situations.
—Extremely knowledgeable of the city and are able to provide members with recommendations of safe and reputable establishments.
—Knowledgeable of dangerous areas in their cities and can make appropriate recommendations on what to avoid.
—Experienced and patient in dealing with people under the influence of alcohol.
—Legally bound to a confidentiality agreement to ensure members’ privacy.
In fact, California DUI attorneys—including those in San Francisco—are recommending that their clients who have recently been charged with drunk driving sign up for the service because it could help their defense.
