As the Better Business Bureau looks into a Surrey-based designated driver’s service after online complaints, others in the industry fear they’ll be painted with the wrong brush.
“You know a lot of people don’t know about it, and if this is the first they’re hearing about it, my lord.”
This from John Bentley with “Dial a Designated Driver,” reacting to the online storm around “Sober Girls designated drivers,” who’ve fielded a slew of complaints.
Bentley says his industry is new — and fears the bad press could drive people away.
“It gives the companies like ours and other ones that are out there busting their butt to try to do something and make a difference, it’s giving them a black eye.”
Designated driver services work by driving intoxicated people home in their own cars, and Bentley says they play a role in keeping roads safe.
He says he’s worried about losing years spent building clients trust.
