If you have a little too much to drink over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and are not safe to drive, don’t risk it. Just call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO for a free tow home.

 

The program is provided by AAA and is free for everyone, not just auto club members.

 

The free ride is offered Nov. 28 through Dec. 1.

 

Although the ride is free, there are some restrictions and 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.
