#Yearender2017: A night out in Delhi with a designated driver who drives drunk party animals home

Experiences of a cabbie on the night of New Year celebrations

New Year’s eve is a time for revelries, but for private drivers in Delhi, the night means a lot of customers. Simply because most of the people out are drunk.

This is where it turns into an opportunity for drivers in Delhi. Just days ahead of New Year celebrations, dozens of partygoers book drivers to drive their vehicles on the night of celebrations.

According to the drivers, the idea fits well with a city like Delhi where drunk driving and subsequent accidents are common.

InUth took a ride with Subhash Chandra – one of the hundreds of private drivers in the capital – to understand what it’s like to drive revellers home on New Year.
