Re: “To the men who disagree with the concept of Lady Drive-Her

I'd like to address the second post starting with: I'm sympathetic to the issue.........If you have listened to Lady Drive Her's interviews carefully (and their are a few more interviews tomorrow as well, one is on 95.7 Friday morning) you will not hear "no male policies " anywhere in her conversation. She already has 2 established Companies with Men and Women Drivers carrying Men and Women passengers. There is a group of Women that have been working at the Airport that offered to help out with the demands from the public ,when necessary, if they chose a woman Driver. Just so you know, Males and Females are requesting this service for their own personal reasons..These women have their own business's already, or work for another Company. They also have men and women passengers. Where does it say "no male policy"? I'm confused. The HRM Taxi Commission has Men and Women Drivers, is there a law against letting the public know this? It is the consumer, customer that is requesting this service not Lady Drive Her. The media have all put their own spin on this article that we could not control, so hopefully Lady Drive Her has her day to try and get her message across and hopefully ease some of the concerns that are out there.

Re: “To the men who disagree with the concept of Lady Drive-Her

Lady Drive Her is a team of women who are already legally licensed with the HRM and licensed with the Halifax Airport . These woman either work for themselves or they work for another Company. These women are making themselves available, because the demand is there for a personal request for a female driver from MALES and FEMALES for their own personal reasons . This has been a demand for years, but there was never enough women drivers to provide this service/demand. Crissy (owner) decided that maybe now, we do have enough women drivers on board, to try and help with the demand for women drivers. This has always been discussed( for years) but action was never taken until now. Lady Drive Her was not created because of all the publicity about safety . It was created due to the demand from the consumer while working at the Airport and during pre arranged service. This Lady Drive Her Group has never worked the City down town other than pre arranged service . They all are working through the Halifax Airport because they pay for an annual license there. Crissy has an establish Company already, with men and women drivers that transport men and women passengers. This New Venture "Lady Drive Her" is a company that is giving the public, Male or Female, the option or choice for a Lady Driver due to the customers own person reasons. If the demand wasn't there , there would be no need for the option . This Lady Drive Her Group, have been working for years doing prearranged service and working with their Airport licenses. Letting the public know there is now options to fulfill their personal needs, is not a crime . Sure this venture has ruffled a lot of feathers, but after explaining their true intentions , and the message Lady Drive Her is trying to get across , are finding people are starting to understand, they are just trying to fill the public demand . Lady Drive Her was not aware of how much the personal demand is in the city , until all this publicity has started, as these drivers were always based at the Airport . ( fyi: Just awhile ago an established City Taxi Company was on the radio to let people know that their Company had woman drivers that the public
could request. I never heard any feedback from this interview??)
I hope I may have helped answer a few of the questions people had about this new Venture, and to assure you the intentions are not to be racist or sexist . It's all about options and choices . During these last few days I find that people are trying to help spread the word about this new option ,and sometimes choosing the wrong words and coming across in a different light . There are a few talk shows and ventures ahead that will hopefully give Lady Drive Her time to get the message across to the public . Having options is not a crime, and trying to service the need/demands of the consumer, male or female . Hopefully I have chosen the proper words to explain this venture, to help you understand the message. I personally am one of the 10 Lady Drive Her's, that have had a Taxi/Limo license with the City and Airport for 20 years, and my Husband is also a Taxi Driver. Believe me, there is no bad intentions here at all.
And the male opposition that Lady Drive Her was involved with, has been resolved after they understood our intentions .
