Crowdfunding and How It Applies to MiiRyde

Crowdfunding has become a significant tool for charities, personal campaigns, and businesses alike. The concept of crowdfunding is a simple one: projects, ventures and campaigns get funded by raising small amounts of money from large numbers of people. In this blog post, co-founder Brian Bazely discusses some of the reasons why we chose crowdfunding as a […]

Busy Nights Ahead

Last night marked the busiest night (with exception to New Year’s Eve) in Driverseat’s history. This is very encouraging given that it was a typical December Saturday night. Many Holiday parties were booked, which kept our teams extremely busy in all communities, and call-in traffic was at an all time high, as our collective dispatchers […]

Changing Decades Old Habits Not an Easy Task

In 1981, in Kitchener, ON, the first household recycling pilot was launched. Prior to this time, all waste generated in a household was taken to landfill in plastic garbage bags. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recycling_in_Canada.

While it may seem like that was a lifetime ago, and we could not imagine life without recycling today, it took a significant shift in mindset, […]

Driving Lane… Or Passing Lane?

Drinking and driving in Arizona? We guarantee you won’t after you hear about this…

Drinking and driving in Maricopa County (which includes Phoenix and surrounding areas) comes with a very unique punishment. My co-founder, Brian, and I were in the area recently for a conference, and learned that the local Sheriff (in most circles, a very unpopular man) created Tent City more than 16 years ago. This is a […]

Graduated Licensing is Brilliant

Over a recent family dinner, I had an interesting conversation with my wife’s parents, her grandfather and my two daughters, both of which have their driver’s license but both of which are subject to the graduated licensing system.

My daughters grew up knowing that if you drink, you are not to drive.  Even in the days prior […]

Alcohol Consumption Patterns in Canada

Wine is “King” in Canada.  Well, it isn’t yet but it is likely to become King if the current trends continue.  Canada is known as a country that loves our beer.  The funny video from Tim Hicks called “Stronger Beer” speaks to the differences between the U.S. and Canada but focuses on our love of […]
