just so you guys all know before you get screwed over like me... operation red nose does NOT cover burnaby, and safe ride is 40 bucks for the first 10 kms then 2.50 for every km after that. So it can get pricey depending how far you live. After reading the facebook page i probably wont be using them either...

It's not so much about being nice. I am doing this because I have three children who are old enough to drive. They wouldn't get behind the wheel after drinking and they know better than to get into a car driven by a person who has been drinking. I just don't want them to become a statistic - victims who were injured or killed by another vehicel driven by an intoxicated person. My wife becomes designated driver for our kids when they are in a bind. I will be designated driver for any RS members in need. Pretty simple. I already have another person, dr.funk helping me out in this. Never met the guy, but I believe it's gonna be fun, interesting, and enjoyable.

So here's how it works.

If person has car at house/bar/massage parlour, etc. and is totally wasted, they will somehow post request on RS (this thread). Hopefully the volunteers won't be too busy driving people who really don't need this service (hint, hint). Once we get the request, two people in a single car will show up. One guy will get into the individual's vehicle with the owner in it and drive it home. The other person follows and picks up the other partner and continue to help others.

If a person is at a location without a vehicle and it is waaay to late to take transit or Sky train home, one of the volunteers will show up to drive the person home.

Still some planning to do.

Hopefully, people are not going to abuse this system by purposely getting drunk to get a free ride in order to meet me or any other RS member for shits and giggles.

One question I have for you guys. Is getting a taxi to take you from DT Vancouver to Surrey late at night still a problem? If so, this service will indeed come in handy. If the distance is very far, I think driver should be compensated for fuel costs.......... or, depending on driver, making a donation to a worthwhile cause that RS supports would be wonderful.

Some rules to go over:

No smoking or drinking or blow while being driven. Sex? Only if I can take photos and post them on RS......... actually, that may not discourage some people on RS. LOLOLOL

If you become belligerant, I will kick your sorry ass out of the car without hesitation and call RS Beatdown Crew.

Someone should buy MG1 a nice cup of Eggnog to enjoy while he is driving.

Awesome, we have another volunteer. Thanks, BaBIE_Bee.

And, of course, dr.funk.

Volunteers don't have to be available 24/7. Just indicate in a PM, possible dates and times. Will put up schedule when we get closer to New Year's.

Also, people who volunteer. Your Identities will be protected. No names, addresses, phone numbers, etc. Nobody needs to know. Your user name is fine.

I already envision xilley making a post.
