No less than 1,850 volunteers made those rides possible, including 84 in the Laval – Basses Laurentides region, with 37 on Friday, and 47 on Saturday.
The region with the most rides back during those days is that of Québec – Lévis, with 187, including 103 on Saturday.
The service will be available until Saturday, Dec. 31, from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.
It’s now been 27 years for the organization Opération Nez rouge Laval – Basses Laurentides, which exists since 1986.
Opération Nez rouge is a non-profit organization, whose goal is to educate the population to adopt better behaviors, i.e. to avoid driving while impaired.
