Kudos

Kudos to Budweiser and AAA. I hope every business serving alcohol posts this in the bathrooms on big, bright poster board. No excuse to leave loaded when you have a free ride and tow.

Tow?

Towing seems like overkill to me. If you get drunk somewhere, leave the car, get a ride, catch a cab or take advantage of this service by Bud.

John Brown; leaving one's car

John Brown; leaving one's car is why most won't accept a ride home.... I know, I know, but drunks aren't rational.

There is no way towing cars

There is no way towing cars of impaired drives is cost effective with preventing drunk driving.

No one is considering cost;

No one is considering cost; they are just offering to get people home without them driving, including taking their cars too if that is what it takes to keep them from driving. It's Budweiser and AAA's dime....
