Drive It Forward Program Launched To Help Make The Roads Safer This Holiday Season

Date Posted: Sat, Oct 25 2014, PR NewsWire
BeMyDD (Be My Designated Driver), the nation's largest designated driver service, today launched Drive It Forward, a program that provides an innovative, safe transportation option for partygoers this holiday season.

With drunk driving statistics significantly higher during the holidays—the U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) reports 40 percent of traffic-related deaths during Christmas and New Year's involve drunk drivers—BeMyDD provides a safe, reliable and affordable alternative to getting behind the wheel after a night out.

BeMyDD offers an alternative option to ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft through a range of affordable services where professional, experienced chauffeurs operate the customer's own vehicle, at standard published rates without hidden fees and surge pricing. All BeMyDD drivers undergo extensive background checks and interviews and are fully insured.

BeMyDD's Drive It Forward program provides new customers purchasing their first ride with a US$20 BeMyDD gift card so they can give the gift of safety to a friend or relative. Reservations can be made through, calling +1 (877) U BeMyDD (823 6933), or by downloading and using the mobile app (iOS or Android). The program runs 11/25/14 – 1/1/15. Gift cards can be mailed or issued electronically after new customer completes their first ride.

"BeMyDD provides a socially responsible service year round, but with the spike in alcohol-related car accidents and fatalities during the holiday period, we wanted to do something special to help make the roads safer over the next few weeks," said Arthur Simanovsky, president and CEO of BeMyDD. "So that's how we came up with Drive It Forward."

Those out on the town this holiday season can make use of two BeMyDD services. With the Personal Driver Service, a professional driver arrives at client's home, chauffeurs the client anywhere they want go using the client's own car, making multiple stops if necessary. The driver waits in the car and takes client back home when they are ready. Rates for the Personal Driver Service range from US$14-US$19.50 per hour depending on geography.  With the Pick-Up Service, a client has driven to a location, but does not want to drive home and contacts BeMyDD. The company dispatches two professional drivers to take the client and their car home. Rates for the Pick-Up Service are US$25 for car pick-up + mileage.
