New App Sends Designated Driver to Retrieve Partygoers and Their Cars

The holiday season is a time for alcohol excess. But now you don’t have to worry about leaving your car somewhere if you are too intoxicated to drive home, thanks to BeMyDD, a new cab service that dispatches a driver to meet you at your event and drive you and your vehicle back safely.

A major reason for drunk driving is that people don’t want to leave their car somewhere overnight and have to worry about picking it up the next day. Now partygoers don’t have to worry about that. Sometimes we have the intention of having one drink and being able to drive ourselves home safely. Often times, that isn’t the case. Now you can text your BeMyDD cab driver to pick you and your car up from the party. The cost of BeMyDD is roughly twice the price of a yellow cab but when it comes to your safety, you can’t put a price on that.

BeMyDD says the pick-up service, which is available in 76 cities nationwide, is one-third of the company’s overall livery business, but growing.
