"I've used other designated driver services in the past but have been disappointed. I always get the highest level of customer service using Sober Guys. I often go out and enjoy dinner and drinks with friends and there is never a worry about how I am getting home and that my car will be in good hands "

Michelle Briann - October 9, 2016


"Sober Guys stepped forward when I had an unfortunate experience with another competing company. Sober Guys was nothing but professional in their dealings with me and my friends that night. The pricing is fair (not too far above the price of a taxi) and you don't have to worry about getting your car the next morning. Thank-you Sober Guys for the great experience!"

D U I Laws - .05 / .08


New Rules on Drunk Driving in Alberta:
• Drivers caught with a blood alcohol concentration of .05 but less than the Criminal Code limit of .08 will have their licenses suspended for three days and their vehicles impounded for three days.
• For a second offense, it’s a 15-day license suspension, the vehicle is impounded for a week, and the driver must take a day-long course on the dangers of drinking and driving.
• For all subsequent offenses, the license is taken away for a month, the vehicle is impounded for a week and the driver must take a weekend course on the impact of alcohol on his or her life.
• New drivers on graduated licenses can’t have any alcohol in their system while driving. If caught above .05 but below .08, it’s a month-long license suspension and the vehicle is impounded for a week.
• There are no fines or demerits. Towing and impound fees are borne by the driver: tow fees start at an estimated $116 and impound fees begin at $30 a day. If a drivers license is suspended for more than three days, the driver must pay to get it back —about $22.
• Alberta will keep a 10-year record of offenses.
• Three-day seizures of vehicles and licenses can’t be appealed, but longer suspensions can be appealed to the quasi-judicial Transportation Safety Board.
• Under laws that took effect July 1, drivers caught with higher than .08 blood alcohol concentration and charged criminally will have their licenses suspended until the case is resolved in the courts.
• Drivers over .08 have their vehicles seized for three days on the first offense and for a week for every offense after that. They also have to take courses on the dangers of drinking and driving and, if the arrests continue, a weekend course on how alcohol is impacting their lives.
• If convicted of the Criminal Code charge, the driver has to install an ignition interlock for one year for the first conviction, three years for the second conviction and five years for the third. These devices check the driver’s breath and won’t allow a vehicle to start if alcohol is detected.
• In 2010, 96 people were killed in Alberta in crashes involving drinking and driving. For every person killed, about 14 were injured. Over the last five years, 569 people have died in such crashes on Alberta roads.
• Impaired driving is the largest single criminal cause of death in Canada.
• The number of people killed in alcohol-related crashes in Alberta has fallen by 24 per cent between 2007 and 2010.
• British Columbia introduced similar legislation in 2010 and has seen a drop in the number of alcohol-related road deaths.
Sober Guys Designated Driver Service Ltd opened February 6th, 2012 in Vancouver, British Columbia with two drivers.
