LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif., Sept. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Your Car, Our Driver (YCOD) ( www.yourcarourdriver.com ), Southern California's on-call, affordable and socially responsible private chauffeur service, today announced customer consensus that YCOD is the hot, new, must-have accessory for an active Orange County social life. As a proof point, YCOD also announced its revenue has doubled in the last year.

YCOD is an explosive new service in which on-call chauffeurs drive clients in clients' own cars. At a fraction of the cost of traditional limo service and therefore particularly compelling in today's economy, YCOD is a popular choice for events and casual nights on the town alike. Especially when the alternative can be an embarrassing, costly and debilitating DUI, YCOD is as practical as it is fashionable.

"In this fun and exciting world known as 'the OC,' Bette and I have the comfort of knowing YCOD drivers are available to drive us to and from events here and in L.A.," said Wylie Aitken, founding partner of Aitken Aitken & Cohn and an OC socialite. "YCOD combines safety and ease of use at a reasonable cost in the comfort of our own car."

Underscoring its wild popularity, YCOD's revenue has doubled in just one year. In addition to the boost in status that customers report, YCOD attributes the boom in business to increased enforcement of drunk-driving laws. On Labor Day weekend 2010, there were more than 20 sobriety checkpoints in Orange County alone.

"I would encourage anyone looking to step up their image and safeguard their reputation to consider using our services," said Josef Wojtkow, Founder and CEO of YCOD. "What's more, we understand the personal connection people have with their cars and drive accordingly."

YCOD charges a rate of $30 per hour with a three-hour minimum most nights.
