MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Help is just a phone call away for those who find themselves a little too tipsy to drive after bringing in the new year.

Once again, the AAA Auto Club has teamed up with Bud Light for their annual ‘Tow to Go’ program which offers a confidential ride home and tow – both free of charge.

You don’t even have to be an AAA member.

The Tow to Go program will provide safe rides home to intoxicated drivers through January 1st, 2014.

Triple-A says since 1998, ‘Tow to Go’ has kept more than 22,000 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.

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.
  • It’s confidential local ride within a 10-mile radius to a safe location
  • 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.
  • The AAA tow truck takes the vehicle and the driver home.
