AAA works year-round to educate motorists about driving practices that will help keep them safe and reduce traffic-related crashes and the injuries that can result. To help members and non-members celebrate safely this holiday, AAA is offering Tipsy Tow service from 6 pm Tuesday, December 24 through 6 am Thursday, December 26, 2013 and 6 pm Tuesday, December 31 through 6 am Thursday, January 2, 2014. While AAA encourages party goers to designate a driver if they plan to consume alcohol this holiday, the Tipsy Tow service is available to assist those who find themselves in an impaired situation and need to get them and their vehicles home safely.
To take advantage of Tipsy Tow, drivers should:
• Call 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357) between 6 pm Tuesday, December 24 through 6 am Thursday,
December 26 and between 6 pm Tuesday, December 31 through 6 am January 2, 2014.
• State that they need a “Tipsy Tow.”
• Provide their name, home address, phone number and vehicle location.
Tipsy Tow provides a one-way ride for the driver and their vehicle at no cost for up to 10 miles. Services will not be provided to motorists requesting a tow to another drinking establishment or to a destination other than their home. A tow to a hotel may be allowed if the motorist is, or plans to become, a guest.
Other services that will not be provided as part of the Tipsy Tow program include: requests for a vehicle start, flat tire change, gas delivery and/or taxi service. For trips longer than 10 miles, motorists can expect to be charged the towing company’s standard rate. If members are requiring these services separate from the Tipsy Tow program, we will provide the service as usual.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one alcohol-impaired death occurs every 45 minutes across the country, with alcohol impaired drivers contributing to one out of every three traffic deaths.
As North America’s largest motoring and leisure travel organization, AAA provides more than 53 million members with travel, insurance, financial and automotive-related services.
