An Ohio-based designated driver service has partnered with a national producer and marketer of wine and spirits to encourage those planning to drink on Halloween to do so safely.

More than 15 Brown-Forman brands will offer exclusive 20 percent off BeMyDD discount codes to Facebook fans to help raise awareness and encourage trial use of the designated driver service.

The discount codes will be offered via Facebook during the week of Oct. 24 and will be valid for 30 days.

According to the service, the brands offering codes include Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey, Southern Comfort, Canadian Mist, Chambord, Collingwood, Early Times, el Jimador, Finlandia, Gentleman Jack, Herradura, Korbel, Old Forester, Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards, Tuaca and Woodford Reserve.

Featuring the tagline “We drive your car, so you don’t have to,” BeMyDD was founded in Cleveland in March 2010 by Arthur Simanovsky and Alexa Milkovich, both in their mid-20s, and now operates in 42 cities in 16 states.

BeMyDD offers a personal driver service and a pickup service, according to a news release.

For personal driver service, customers reserve a driver who will come to a pickup location and drive the customer and his or her guests to a location in the customer’s vehicle. The driver will wait for the patrons and then take them back when they are ready. Personal driver service costs $12.50 per hour in the Toledo area, according to BeMyDD’s website.

For pickup service, a team of two drivers is dispatched to a location where they drive the customer and the customer’s vehicle home. In the Toledo area, pickup service costs $25 plus mileage, which is $2.95 per mile for the first 10 miles and $1.50 per mile for each additional mile, according to BeMyDD’s website.
