Default Take me home, I'm ****ed !

Hi all,
My girlfriend was in London recently and she saw an advert in a pub for a
company who, if you're ****ed in the pub with your car outside, will send a
driver on a fold-up motorcycle who will then drive you and your car home,
taxi-style, after putting the fold-up in the boot of the car. Is this for
real or is she taking the mick? If it's for real, does anyone have any more
info please?

Thanks in advance

Peter

Yes it is true. Can't find a website reference but the company who
provide the service have been featured on the news and many other
programmes.

IIRC it's based on a scheme started in the States.

their Merc.

Does anybody know what these guys (or their competitors) charge? All they
say is that they are significantly cheaper than a "return black cab
journey".

This is not a great comparison because I would use a private minicab

anyway.
