Need a ride, call these guys

Jim and Laura Taylor offer a ride home for both drivers who've had a bit too much -- and their cars. They run the Phone a Friend Bar Shuttle in the Harrison, Michigan, area. Jim Taylor was running out of his unemployment benefits when his wife came up with the bar shuttle idea. For ten bucks, the Taylors are the designated drivers, with client's getting a van ride home, while their cars are driven home, too. The Taylors tell the Morning Sun newspaper that taking a taxi can leave a bar patron's car subject to towing or vandalism. The Taylors say they not only get their patrons safely home, they sometimes tuck them in, too.
