It’s not unusual for adults to go out at night and drink. When a bunch of adults want to have relax and unwind in a fun place like Daytona Beach, FL, they typically head to bars or nightclubs, where they enjoy beer, wine, liquor, etc.
Now if someone drives their own car to the bar and drinks “too much,” they could end up driving drunk. Penalties for drunk driving in Florida, for first time offenders, could mean imprisonment of up to six months in jail as well as a fine ranging from $500 to $1,000. In addition, first time offenders also get placed on probation for up to one year. Besides these consequences, there’s also the idea that a drunk person could injure and/or kill other people if and when they crash into them. Obviously, drunk driving is not good for anyone; thank God for cabs!
Why are taxis an ideal option for a night out with friends in Florida? Well, the main reason is safety. If people in your party are going to drink a lot, isn’t it nice to know a sober taxi driver will take everyone home safely at the end of the night? Furthermore, this way one person in the group doesn’t have to be the “designated driver” (and “miss out on all the fun”) because the taxi driver is the designated driver!
Besides the whole drinking thing, using a taxi service is also convenient because a taxi is focused on you, rather than “everybody.” A bus line, for example, has a very specific route and has to load and unload all sorts of people. Bus travel can be tedious. Taxi service, on the other hand, is more direct. You won’t have to walk a mile to get to a bus stop. The vehicle comes right to your door and takes you right to the other door you want to go to, on your schedule.
If you’re going to go out partying with friends, why not use a taxi service to pick everybody up? This helps lessen travel-related expenses such as gas and parking fees. Plus, it gets everybody together in one vehicle, which is good for the social aspect of getting to/from the bar or nightclub.
