Let’s have an honest conversation: how many of you out there have, at one point in your life, gotten behind the wheel after consuming one too many? It’s not something to be proud of, but plenty of drivers have made the terrible call to roll the dice and put innocent lives at risk.
In fact, according to MADD’s statistics, in 2013 alone, 28.7 MILLION people admitted to driving under the influence. It’s an almost unconscionable number, but luckily there are so many individuals out there who are doing their best to keep these rates down.
One business, in particular, that does its part to keep drunk drivers off the road is Original Joe’s in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada. For the past year or so, the managing partner of the restaurant, Jay McLean, has been quietly leaving notes on the windshields of cars parked overnight in the business’ lot.
Instead of calling a tow truck or leaving a “nastygram”, Original Joe’s offers the owner of the car free chicken wings as a reward for calling a sober ride. How cool is that?
