It’s two in the morning. The bars are all closing and home is a long walk away. Everyone in your party has been drinking, but one person pipes up and says that he’s cool to drive. Pop quiz: do you give your keys to this person who you’ve been drinking with all night? Or do you call a Columbus taxi service and have a cab pick you up? If you answered the latter, you were correct. Even though it may cost a little extra money, it’s always better to arrive home safe than to risk being arrested, injured, or killed because someone was drunk behind the wheel.

Don’t Drive Drunk

If you haven’t already heard, the statistics on drinking and driving are absolutely alarming. Almost ten thousand people die every year in the United States due to a car accident where alcohol is involved. To put that in perspective, that’s roughly one death every 53 minutes. One out of every three people in the United States will be involved in a car crash where alcohol is a factor within their lifetime. As pointed out earlier, a large number of those people will die. In addition to the toll of death and injury that drunk driving causes, the cost is staggering. The United States spends 132 billion dollars a year on costs related to drunk driving. That means that every taxpayer will spend roughly 500 dollars apiece every year due to the fact that people are consuming alcohol and getting behind the wheel. Any way you slice it, drunk driving is a bad idea. Moreover, if you keep it up, you will eventually be caught. Meanwhile, no one ever got arrested, injured, or had their life ruined because they were drunk in the backseat of a taxi cab.

Reliable Transport at Any Hour

Many people forget that a Columbus taxi service runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No matter what time last call happens, no matter what time the bartender boots you out onto the street for the night, you can call a taxi cab and have them pick you up. In most cases, you don’t need even need to remember your exact location. Most taxi drivers are so used to picking people up after a night of drinking that all you have to do is tell them the name of the bar you’re at and they’ll know exactly where to go. Before you go out for a night on the town, put the number of a cab company in your wallet or save it on your cell phone. If you forget to do so, ask your bartender to call you a cab. He or she will be more than happy to make sure that you get home safe and sound. When you’re drinking, your judgment is impaired. But don’t ever make the decision to drive under the influence of alcohol. Call a cab company instead.
