Operation Red Nose

What is Operation Red Nose (ORN)?

Operation Red Nose is a unique program against drinking and driving. Essentially, it is a volunteer safe ride home service provided during the Holiday Season to all motorists who have been drinking or who do not feel fit to drive their own vehicle. It is an original and free way of getting a safe ride in one’s own vehicle without driving it!

Since 1984, Operation Red Nose’s mission has been to encourage responsible behavior with regard to impaired driving in a non-judgemental manner by enabling communities to provide a free and confidential chauffeur service to their members, the financial benefits of which are redistributed to local organizations dedicated to youth.
