MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Super Bowl and drinking often go hand in hand which is why the AAA Auto Club has teamed up once again with Budweiser for their ‘Tow to Go’ program which offers a confidential ride home and tow – both free of charge on Super Bowl Weekend. You don’t even have to be a AAA member.
The Tow to Go program will provide safe rides home to intoxicated drivers February 1 – 3.READ MORE: Hollywood Looks To Tighten Animal Abuse Laws
Nearly two in five (37%) consumers think people are more likely to use a designated driver on Super Bowl weekend than other holidays, with nine in ten (90%) reporting that they think people tend to drink more alcohol when compared to a typical non-holiday weekend.
“This program is invaluable because it brings attention to the dangers of drinking and driving beyond just giving an intoxicated driver a safe ride home on Super Bowl weekend,” said Gerry Gutowski, Sr. Vice President, Automotive Services, The Auto Club Group.READ MORE: London-Bound American Airlines Flight Returned To MIA After Couple Refused To Wear Masks
Triple-A says since its inception in1998, ‘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:
- It’s a 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.
