    June Is National Safety Month

    June 10th, 2010

    National Safety MonthEvery June, Rare Form Limousine chauffeurs don National Safety Month lapel pins to highlight our commitment to year-round safety.

    Rare Form Limousine is a proud member of the National Safety Council. Our chauffeurs attend monthly in-house safety meetings where they are briefed on the latest safety issues such as distracted driving, seasonal issues such as road construction and inclement weather, and traditional issues like performing vehicle inspections and obeying traffic laws.

    Rest assured that Rare Form Limousine does everything we can to make safety our number one priority. We know it means everything to you.

    NCIS: Los Angeles Knows Limos

    May 6th, 2010

    Are you one of the 15 million people who watched the NCIS: Los Angeles episode, “Fame,” last week? When Callen goes undercover as a wealthy player, he heads to the hottest club in Los Angeles in…a Rare Form Limousine?

    It sure looked that way, as the Krystal Lincoln Town Car featured in this season’s hottest new series is the same model and color as our Stretch Town Car. We know we have good taste, but we love to see it reinforced on television, just like on last year’s American Idol.

    Washington Limousine Bill Dies in Senate

    March 11th, 2010

    Coleman Dock and SeattleI know my posts have been heavily weighted towards “What’s Happening” this year, but news is news, and I want to keep you current with Olympia while congress is still in session. The Seattle PI recently reported on state lawmakers’ progress with the revised limousine legislation, but since then, the bill seems to have died in the senate.

    Local news has made the issue of illegal operators a top story this past week, and our world-class chauffeurs aren’t too happy about the negative press. However, the Puget Sound Limousine Association is planning on working directly with the city of Seattle in the coming months to help bring an end to the anarchy outside train stations, hotels, and Coleman Dock.
