Free tow program available for long holiday weekend

If you have too much to drink over the long holiday weekend and are not safe to drive, don’t risk it. Just call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO for a free confidential tow within a 10-mile radius to a safe location.

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

The free ride is offered beginning Friday, July 4 through 6 a.m. on Monday, July 7 for the Independence Day 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 other 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 intoxicated individual a safe ride home.
