Designated Driver Services Are They A Good Choice?

Designated Driver Services Are They A Good Choice?

Consider this before you decide to use any designated driver service

You have no way of knowing if the license the person has shown you is actually valid.

Is it suspended? YOU DON’T KNOW

If it is suspended or the driver of your vehicle is otherwise unlicensed YOUR INSURANCE WILL ONLY COVER THE OTHER VEHICLE IN CASE OF ACCIDENT.  YOUR INSURANCE WILL BE CANCELLED, AND YOUR VEHICLE AND YOUR INJURIES WILL NOT BE COVERED.

The unfortunate fact is that the designated driver business in Oshawa is completely unregulated, there are no business licenses, there is no minimum set of standards enforced by the city, there is no recourse for the consumer, who in many instances probably believe that these that these types of businesses are licensed like most publicly accessed businesses of this city.  There is the added problem that the City of Oshawa through its’ total inaction in allowing an unregulated business to flourish could and would be involved in a very expensive lawsuit should a serious accident occur at the hands of one of these services.
