THIS YEAR, partygoers who feel they may be too intoxicated to drive home now have easy access to a taxi.
The initiative is as a result of a partnership between BeepCab and telecommunications giant Flow.
The telecommunications company’s local director of corporate communications and stakeholder management, Marilyn Sealy, said they had joined forces with the Barbados Beverage Alcohol Alliance and Consumers Guarantee Insurance, along with BeepCab, in order to arrest drink driving this Crop Over season.
In addition to “sober zones” and voluntary breathalyser testing at select events, partygoers will be given the opportunity to download the BeepCab app which will give them access to around 60 taxi drivers who can take them home safely.
