Pro racecar driver acts as chauffeur to prevent drunk driving

In order to discourage drinking and driving, pro motor racing driver Fredy Barth has donated his time to an important public service program. Barth, a World Touring Car champion, will act as a personal chauffeur for those who have had one too many drinks at their holiday parties.

Barth has volunteered his services for Nez Rouge, a campaign created to help prevent accidents in Switzerland.

"I look forward every year to this Nez Rouge night," Barth told Yahoo Sport UK. "Firstly, because I, as a racer, can work in the service of this national foundation and make a real contribution to road safety. Secondly, because the passengers are very grateful and always friendly. It really is a lot of fun."

Although the service is free, passengers are encouraged to give a voluntary contribution to a local charity. Barth will drive vehicles provided by Jaguar Land Rover Switzerland. During the first weekend of the initiative, Barth and his fellow motor racers drove 62 passengers back home safely.

During this time of year, people are more likely to overindulge in alcohol at holiday parties. It is important that you know who is going to get you home safely before you begin drinking. To limit the hassle of finding a designated driver, it may be a great idea to book a personal chauffeur ahead of time.
