If we wanted to be a progressive country and lead the world in needless deaths each year caused by drunk driving or driving under the influence, I have an Idea. Every year millions of dollars and T.V. Radio, social media campaigns are spent on educating the general public on the consequences of Drunk Driving and Police spend amazing amounts of our tax dollars trying to protect us from those of us who decide we can try and get away with it.
But rarely have I heard anyone talk about an allternate solution to this issue that is truly proactive and would really make an impact on lowering the amount of deaths needlessly caused by driving under the influence.
Wouldn't you rather your hard earned tax dollar go to truly saving a life ?
Why not have government subsidized paid for free taxi rides for anyone who is over the legal limit to drive. Imagine the jobs this would create and imagine the lives saved.
How many of your friends or family have decided to drive because of the cost of a taxi? Or the inconvenience of getting a taxi? Not only should the taxis be free but busses and transit as well.
If our government was truly in support of all Canadians and humanity why not?
Why not make this a free service to the public that we all pay for in our yearly taxes.
I know I personally would feel much better about my hard earned money going to the greater good to save lives and promote economic growth.
There are so many other reasons that free transit could benefit our economy and eco. The possibilities are endless.
I know this is a blue sky thought but like.... free energy ......or water
But shouldn't it be?
