Who has heard of this service "Paddy Wagons" and does anyone have any feedback on it?

I've used it once. Basically they come pick you and your car up from your whereabouts and take you home. I used it at Bluestone, both the girlfriend and I had our cars there. I was okay to drive, girlfriend is strictly against driving if shes had anything more than one drink so we used Paddy Wagon to drive her car to my place in Manhattan. It's a bit pricey--I think almost $35 that night, though I was even able to pay with my debit card. But in retrospect, it's better than thousands you'd pay for DUI's (and not like New Lenox doesn't give those away like candy on Halloween)

I've used Paddywagon's a few times. They're on time, really nice, and the guy that answers the phone has an authentic accent. A s Dude said, they basically come and pick your drunk ass up from the bar or wherever you are. It seems expensive: 0-5 miles is $25,5-10 is $35, and then i think it's $35+$3 a mile farther than 10 miles. I've never had to go that far. But, the way the cops are out here new lenox, mokena, frankfort, etc. with DUI's it is completely worth it; DUI's aren't cheap, plus now you would have to get a breathalyzer in your car- NO THANKS. Not to mention it's way safer than driving yourself home drunk. I give them 2 thumbs up.

A few times doesn't really make someone a lush- My sister arranged for them to pick my friends and I up after her WEDDING (over a year ago), I called them for my friend who had too much to drink after a softball game (I was sober enough to drive, but we had 2 cars, and she really couldn't leave her's at the bar), and I used them one time when I had a few beers without eating enough, which made me not comfortable enough to drive.

I think that's actually called being responsible, as opposed to being a drunk hillbilly. Not everyone has a sober ride they can always call, and in the instance I cited above, sometimes you have 2 cars and you don't want to leave it someplace. Getting wasted isn't always the best option, but reality is that it can and does happen.

Clearly, you haven't been 'round these here parts,'cause the drunk hillbillies drive around flinging beers out of their windows- I see the empty bottles/cans when I go to get the mail. Quit being such a damn negative nelly nerdface and go blow.

This service is awesome and all the guys that work for this company are professional and fun people to be around. The price is totally worth it and I strongly recommened them to everyone.

They suck, have reserved them the past two New Years and both times they failed to show up, I don't want to hear some crap excuse when we called 3 days in advance. Figured the first time was because the weather was bad, 45 minutes of them saying they were right down the street was a bunch of BS, shame on us for giving them another chance last year. Nothing but excuses on why they weren't there.

Awesome service. Call and sit back. Have another couple of beers. They come and take you home. Are you in a hurry? Probably not because you are drunk. DUIs are for dummies. So are fatal accidents.
