When David Evans was convicted of drink-driving three years ago, and sentenced to house arrest, not only was he bored out of his mind but he felt he had to give something back to the community.
He wanted to help other party-goers to avoid the temptation of driving home after having a few too many – even if they’d spent all their taxi far on booze!
“I was in a whole bunch of trouble, and that’s when I had the idea,” Evans told RegisterGuard.com.
His idea was called Drunks Against DUIs (DAD) – a joint-venture service with his father Jerry Evans offering limousine rides home to patrons in his newly-purchased Lincoln limo (specifically a 1992 black Lincoln Town Car)!
But it wasn’t a business idea – the Evanses don’t plan on making any money off the service. It’s free of charge, on a first come first serve basis, offering free rides in the Lincoln limo for up to eight people in their hometown of Eugene, Oregon in the US.
“What people are going to get is a nice, safe ride home,” said Jerry Evans, hoping that the ‘unique grab’ of a limo ride will deter people over the limit from driving home from a night out.
And the Evanses definitely do have the right idea – there’s nothing worse than having your night out ruined by being pulled over and charged with drink-driving, or worse, having an accident.
