Get Breaking News First
MIAMI (CBSMiami)– As the song says ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’ and it is until you’ve had too much to drink at a Thanksgiving or any other holiday celebration.
That’s why, once again, the AAA Auto Club has teamed up with Budweiser for their annua ‘Tow to Go’ program which offers a confidential ride home and tow – both free of charge. You don’t even have to be a AAA member.
Triple-A says since 1998, ‘Tow to Go’ has kept more than 20,000 drunk drivers off the roads and saved twice as many lives since it was designed to protect everyone on the roads, not just the intoxicated driver.
‘Tow to Go’ services are offered throughout the states of Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee through January 1st.
The number to call is (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246.
Important Tow To Go Guidelines:
- Tow trucks can take up to two people home; if there are more people in your party—you will need to make other arrangements to get home safely.
- You can’t make an appointment to use the Tow to Go service, it is designed to be used as a last resort so have a designated driver before you have your first drink.
- If a person is too intoxicated to be safely transported in a tow truck, AAA may need to contact law enforcement to assist with getting the intoxicated individual a safe ride home.
