We’ve all been there. What started off as a quiet night gets a little wild, and next thing you’re over the limit and unable to drive home. You could get a taxi or an uber, but then you’ve got to make the trek to pick your car up the next morning.

Well no longer! Pick My Ride provides a designated drivers to get you and your car home after you’ve had a couple of drinks, saving you the hassle of leaving your car at the pub. All drivers are vetted and are qualified to drive for Taxi, Hire Car and ridesharing services.

The service isn’t cheap, setting you back $79 for the first 15km, but it beats doing the return trip the next morning or ending up in the slammer trying to drink drive home.
