You party, WeDrive - the safest way home after a night out!


Driving under the influence continues to be one of the biggest threats to road safety in South Africa. During long weekends, and holiday times in general, road fatalities spike as many road users let loose and enjoy their break.

How much is too much?

For many drivers, the big question is always “how much is too much?” or “How much will put me over the limit?”. Because there are many factors involved and thus we are all affected differently, it is very difficult to estimate just how much is too much.

However, with that said, it’s just not worth the risk to drink and drive – there are safer options.

One such option is WeDrive, a ‘take me home’ service offered by MiWay – you can have all the fun without the drawback, best of all – you get to be driven home safely in the comfort of your own car after all the festivities.

How does WeDrive work?

  • Make a booking – whether it’s 2 weeks or 2 hours before you need it, you can book a WeDrive trip by calling 08600 767 64 or via the MiWay App.
  • Two drivers are dispatched to your location at the agreed time and you will be notified when they arrive.
  • One of the drivers drives you home safely in the comfort of your own car.
  • Bookings/calls for collection must be made before 01h00.The earliest pick up will be done at 05h30 with the last being at 03h00.
  • Peak time collections require a booking of at least 48 hours in advance – weekends, public holidays (the night before and on the day) and, in some instances, major public events that happen within the covered areas.

Let’s face it, we love having fun (and sometimes things can get out of hand) but responsibility and safety comes first. Drinking and driving is a punishable criminal offence and it only takes one point over the limit to seal your fate. Don’t drink and drive – it’s not worth the risk of six years in prison. Check your car insurance policy to see if you qualify for this free service, or contact MiWay to get in on the safe way to party.
