Our school district fixed this by busing all the students to the prom. You are not allowed to show up in a limo or you will not be allowed in. Everyone comes to the school and then get put on buses. Seems to have fixed the problem.

This is what my HS has been doing for years. Prom takes place at a separate location (usually downtown about 30 mins from school). Everyone wanting to attend prom arrives at the HS for the grand march and introductions (they decorate the auditorium and have a pianist playing the prom song and everyone walks the stage for pictures). Then everyone boards coach buses that were decorated by the middle schoolers. When you get to the prom location, everyone sits and dinner starts (catered buffet dinner). Then there is dancing, etc. After prom you have the choice to go back to the HS or head to post prom (sober party held usually at bowling alley where they set up poker tables, various activities, food, etc).

I believe tickets were $110 a couple, which covered bus, food, and prom itself. I think post prom was an extra $10 per person.

Eh, whatever. I can understand why he did it.

I don't see the point in blasting it all over Facebook.

The limo driver my son had last night got all the parents and kids together before they loaded up into the limo and reminded them of the no alcohol rule on the contract we all signed.

I was glad for that. Although our group didn't bring anything other than the girls having teeny purses, I thought it was a good thing for the driver to do.

He told me that the previous night a few of the teens he was driving showed up with flasks/water bottles with alcohol in them (he checked per the contract) and he had to have the parents take them away before he would leave the school.

He vented on his personal page and not his business page, but I think he should have on hits business page.

It lets clients know he is serious about his policy. Good for him!
