DIARY: TOP GEAR - One for the Road

One for the Road describes itself as ’the fifth emergency service’, and once you’ve used their taxi with a difference, you’ll see why.

One for the Road describes itself as ’the fifth emergency service’,

and once you’ve used their taxi with a difference, you’ll see why.



Compare and contrast:



Step one You go out and get pissed.



Step two You are forced to leave your car and call a cab.



Step three Wake up, hungover.



Step four You get another cab to retrieve your car.



Step five Take the parking ticket off your windscreen.



Step six Drive to work (late).



Total cost pounds 75 plus alcohol.



But there is an alternative:



Step one You go out and get pissed.



Step two Phone One for the Road and have one for the road while you

wait.



Step three Your driver arrives on a laughably small scooter.



Step four: He folds up his scooter, puts it in a bag and places it in

your car boot.



Step five He drives you home (fully insured).



Step six You drive to work on time and get promoted.



Total cost pounds 15 plus alcohol.



As you can see, this doesn’t present much of a choice.



These guys also provide a host of other services such as ’delivery and

collecting cars for service’ and a ’bike and van courier service’. Truly

a transport of delight.
