Drunks Rejoice: Designated Drivers At Your Service
Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, or any day for that matter, involves consuming generous helpings of distilled spirits. And that leads to drunken driving, which leads to arrest and jail, which leads to $10,000 in fines, court costs, lawyer fees, etc.
Calling BeMyDD sounds cheap in comparison.
BeMyDD is a year-old company that operates in nine states and recently began offering services in the Fort Worth-Dallas Metroplex. BeMyDD drivers will come to your house and serve as a personal chauffeur, drive your car, take you wherever you want to go, wait for you, and then take you home when you’re ready. The cost is a flat $14.50 an hour.
Or, if you drive somewhere and find yourself too drunk to drive home, BeMyDD will dispatch two drivers — one to drive you home, and one to drive your car home (for an extra $25 plus mileage).
What’s that you say? You’re worried a driver will show up at your door wearing an “I Heart Jeffrey Dahmer” T-shirt and tripping on X?
Rest easy. The company says its drivers are screened and background checked, insured, and come wearing a shirt and tie.
