Ride Home Designated Drivers
Let our drivers bring YOU and YOUR CAR home safely. Make Ride Home Designated Drivers your last call.
Ontario leads the way in combating drinking and driving through some of the toughest laws and programs in North America. Ontario has toughened its impaired driving laws to drive home the message that drinking and driving is not acceptable under any circumstance.
As of May 1, 2009, if you are found to have a blood alcohol concentration from 0.05 to 0.08 (the “warn range”) while driving you will:
• Have your driver’s license suspended for 3 days the first time you are caught.
• Have your driver’s license suspended for seven days and have to attend an alcohol education program the second time you are caught.
• Have your driver’s license suspended for 30 days, complete a remedial alcohol treatment program and have an ignition interlock condition placed on your driver’s license for six months.
Previously, drivers only received a 12-hour driver’s license suspension, no matter how many times they were caught.

The number of drinks consumed is a poor measure of BAC because of the many factors affecting your body’s ability to digest alcohol, such as weight, body fat, and how long ago and how much you’ve eaten. Factors like tiredness and your mood can also make a difference in how alcohol affects your driving ability.
It is very difficult to assess your own BAC or impairment. Small amounts of alcohol affect one’s brain and the ability to drive.
The best way to approach this is if you plan on drinking, plan to call Ride Home Designated Drivers. Don’t Drive!
