Be a Good Wingman this holiday season
Dec. 4, 2017
Plan ahead so we can all make it home safely to our loved ones.
Family gatherings, holiday parties and festive cheer with friends make for some special memories over the holidays.
Make sure the magic and memories of the holiday season never end. Be a good Wingman by stepping up and stopping family and friends from driving impaired. Show your loved ones how much you care by making sure they get home safely – arrange for a sober ride, or offer them a place to stay for the night.
We hope you enjoy the fun and festivities, but remember – there’s never an excuse for driving impaired. There are a number of ways to ensure everyone gets home safely over the holidays. From everyone at SGI, take care out there.
Safe ride programs
Operation Red Nose
SGI is proud to sponsor Operation Red Nose (ORN), a safe ride program that gets you, and your vehicle, home safely. You can enjoy some festive cheer with a safe and sober ride right to your doorstep. ORN runs in Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, The Battlefords and Yorkton on select dates between November 24 and December 31.
Ding in the New Year
Ding in the New Year is a road safety program that provides free bus service on New Year’s Eve. Whatever your plans for the New Year, they depend on you making it home safely from your New Year’s Eve celebrations. SGI is pleased to once again partner with bus services in Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert and Moose Jaw to provide free transportation to party-goers December 31.
Safe ride ideas
There’s always a better option than driving impaired. The key is to plan your safe ride home in advance, before your judgment is impaired. Here are some other options:
- choose a designated driver in advance
- call a cab
- call a friend or family member to pick you up
- use a designated driving service
- host a party and let your guests stay the night
- book a hotel room for the night
- get a group of friends together and book a limo or party bus for the night
SGI has a free Safe Ride app to help you keep track of your options.
Whatever ride you choose, make sure it’s a safe and sober one.
Report Impaired Drivers
If you see a driver you think is impaired, pull over safely to the side of the road and call 911.
