AAA offers free rides, tows on New Year's Eve

 

AAA will offer free rides and tows on New Year's Eve to help prevent drunk driving on the holiday.

The annual Tipsy Tow program will provide free one-way rides and tows for drivers and their vehicles of up to 10 miles to the driver's home.

Additional passengers are welcome if there is room in the tow truck.

Anyone can call (800) 222-4357 (AAA-HELP) to access the service, which will run from 6 p.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. Sunday in Northern California.

The program is available to everyone, not just AAA members, and reservations are not available.

Now in its 20th year, the program is AAA's attempt to take drunk drivers off the road and reduce auto crashes, injuries and fatalities.
