More on the Courtesy Rides in Quincy, Illinois

But a man who was making a difference, a man who was keeping hundreds of drunks out from behind the wheel each weekend, was told red tape was more important than saving lives.

Last night I spoke with Ryan Schnack, attorney for Jonathan Schonekase, operator of Courtesy Rides and a few weeks ago I spoke with Jonathan himself.

Here is a classic case of the people helping themselves and the government neutralizing that which would dare cut its apron string. The Quincy’s city council cares more for over-regulation than it does for keep the streets safe, apparently.

Who wants a government that believes it and it alone is the only savior for the people?
