Fleetcabs spread awareness against drunk driving

MUMBAI : Fleetcab companies are creating awareness among youth on not to drink and drive.

While a series of programmes are lined up to refrain youngsters visiting pubs and restaurants to drive after a drinking session, the fleetcab companies also plan to give priority to bookings made by party revellers and pub hoppers, sources said.

"We are totally against youngsters driving their cars after drinking at pubs and restaurants. It is dangerous and there have been several accidents in the recent past. We have begun a drive titled "If Bar, No Car" for 2013." said Prasenjeet Bagchi of TabCabs.

The fleetcab operator flagged a duathon (cyclothon and walkathon) on Bandra's Carter Road on Friday and the programme concluded with another awareness activity at a popular pub in Khar. Students also participated in the awareness programme.

As far as Meru is concerned, it is also creating awareness among youths through social messages and by sending emails with catchy messages like ""Priya's late night party cab -- Meru"". Said a source in Meru, ""We are assuring the youth that they can rely on fleetcab operators as we have trained drivers who can handle even difficult situations. We also guarantee safety for our customers even late in the night.""

Meru provides cabs which are GPS and GPRS fitted and it recently launched the cab tracker service. Using the service, your close family member, relative or friend can keep track of the movement of the cab while you are being dropped from the pub/restaurant back home.

""Though one may think we are doing it for vested interests, we are simply providing an alternative. Youngsters are free to use their own cars for being dropped back home in case there is a driver (chauffeur or a friend) who is not drunk. But if there is no option available, they can fall back on the fleetcabs,'' Bagchi stated. ""We have trained personnel who will treat passengers with respect and ensure that he or she reaches home safely,'' he added.
