Get Home Safe with AAA's Tipsy Tow

AAA will provide a one-way ride up to 10 miles for drivers and their vehicles for the New Year's Eve holiday.

AAA will offer its Tipsy Tow program on New Year's Eve from 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 31 to 6 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 1. The service provides a free tow home — up to 10 miles — for drinking drivers and their vehicles.

The Tipsy Tow program is open to everyone. You do not need to be an AAA Member to use the service.

During the period Tipsy Tow is available, drivers, potential passengers, party hosts, bartenders and restaurant managers can call 800-222-4357 (AAA-HELP) for the free tow. Just tell the AAA operator, "I need a Tipsy Tow," and a truck will be on its way.

The service provides a one-way ride for the driver and vehicle to the driver's home. If there are additional passengers who need a ride, they will be taken to the driver's home as long is there is sufficient room for them to be transported safely in the tow truck. You cannot make a reservation.

I hope every tipsy driver takes advantage of offerings like this so he/she an get home safely without causing injury to anyone. I also hope the very inconsiderate people who have been entertaining us with fireworks starting at 8 p.m. including a super window rattling fireworks "bomb" cause no harm to anyone but themselves.
