AAA offers free rides and tows for New Year's Eve

Posted: Updated:

The American Automobile Association and Bud Light are again partnering to help new Years Eve partygoers arrive home and keep everyone on the roads safe.

They urge motorists to plan ahead; choosing a designated driver, staying where you are celebrating, using a cab or finding another form of sober transportation.

“New Year’s Eve is the busiest night of the year for Tow to Go, but it doesn’t have to be,” said Amy Stracke, Managing Director, Traffic Safety Advocacy for AAA – The Auto Club Group and Executive Director of the ACG Traffic Safety Foundation. “Please plan ahead to make sure you and your loved ones get home safely.”

Tow to Go will be there to provide a safe way home.

Free to those who are AAA members or not, you can call for a Tow to Go ride anytime Christmas Eve through New Year’s Day. AAA will then safely transport you and your vehicle home or somewhere safe within 10 miles.

“The Tow to Go program is an effective way to promote the use of Designated Drivers and help prevent impaired driving,” said Bill Bradley, Senior Director of Corporate Social Responsibility for Anheuser-Busch. “We are proud to partner with AAA and their roadside assistance drivers to help keep our roads safe.”

Begun in 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 24,000 impaired drivers from roads across the Southeast. The service is designed to be a safety net for motorists who did not plan ahead when drinking away from home. It is offered based on the availability of AAA drivers and tow trucks during times of high call volume. AAA’s Auto Club Group Traffic Safety Foundation provides the Tow to Go service because it helps keep all motorists safe from the dangers of impaired driving.
