If you have too much to drink over the long Labor Day weekend and are not safe to drive, don't risk a DUI or worse. Just call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO for a confidential tow within a 10-mile radius to a safe location.

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

The free ride is offered beginning Friday, Aug. 29 through 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 2 for the Labor Day long weekend holiday.

Although the ride is free, there are some restrictions and guidelines:

♦ Tow trucks can take up to two people; if there are more people in your group you will need to make arrangements to get home safely.

♦ You can't make an appointment in advance to use the Tow to Go service, it is designed to be used as a last resort. Party-goers are encouraged to have a designated driver before they have their first drink.

♦  If a person is too intoxicated to be safely transported in a tow truck, AAA may need to contact a local cab company or law enforcement to assist with getting the individual a safe ride home.

For more information about the program, visit the AAA website.
