Let Rudy Take The Wheel - Operation Red Nose 2012

Every year.. there's a bunch of you who get caught drinking and driving, and as much as I enjoy poking fun at you morons who look for a defense via this forum, I really would rather see you guys use a service such as Operation Red Nose. I volunteer with them every year, and encourage others to do so if you have the time. You help people get their vehicles home safely... taking drunks off the road. On the perks side, I've driven quite a few nice cars to their respective homes...

Operation Red Nose Website

Operation Red Nose starts up on November 30th. It is a free service run by volunteers who will come to your location, and drive you home in your own car if you're unable to do so safely on your own (drinking, tired, etc). Hours are 9pm to 3am on the following dates:

Friday, November 30
Saturday, December 1
Friday, December 7
Saturday, December 8
Friday, December 14
Saturday, December 15
Friday, December 21
Saturday, December 22
Monday, December 31 (New Year's Eve)


Call 1-877-604-NOSE (6673) for a free ride home in your own car... or call these BC locations direct by local number:

Let's keep this thread neat and tidy, shall we? I have now deleted seven posts in this thread and given out 6 points. The focus of this thread is saving lives, not frustrations over things that have happened in the past, or peoples' choice on wordings.

On a related note, BCAA also offers the safe ride home program. If you have BCAA, you can call and they will pick up the car and driver, no passengers and deliver them home. It counts as a regular tow using your BCAA.

I believe this thread is in the wrong forum....as it is basically an ad and does not fall into the guidelines of the police forum. It should be moved to the appropriate forum or even posted as an ad on the sidebar. Anything posted in here is fair game...this is a DISCUSSION forum.....no where was it said to leave anything Mr. Jlenko posts alone......as none of us get the same consideration.

Put it as an ad on the home page...big!!!! Because...it is a good service!

I know..this will get deleted too.....

I've taken advantage of the BCAA thing a few times LOL

Call them for roadside and when they get there, I tell them I'm drunk as fack.

I gotten a few laughs from the drivers along with a "Hey that's pretty f'in clever. Free tow on me. But no puking in the truck!"

XD
