LAFAYETTE, LA (NBC33) — Taylor Noel and Joshua Thibeaux have started a business named Designated Drivers of Lafayette. Unlike the hassel of leaving your car at the bar and riding home in a taxi, Designated Drivers takes you and your car home after a night at the bar.
"This service, it's perfect because when you wake up in the morning you have your vehicle back home. You're not worried about if you drank and drove, you know you had a sober driver. You went out and had fun legally and safely and you got home safely without endangering anybody. We felt that Lafayette needed that cause there's a lot of drinking and driving that goes on in this town so we felt the town needed it," says Taylor Noel.
"Lafayette - it's a party town. I mean, it's a college town. There's always going to be drinking going on and you can't put a price on convenience and safety," says Joshua Thibeaux.
Designated Drivers of Lafayette accepts cash and all major credit cards as forms of payment. They are open for business Thursday through Sunday, and reservations can be made for any point throughout the week. To contact Designated Drivers call (337) 232-1121 or e-mail them at DESIGNATEDDRIVERSLAF@GMAIL.COM.
