Free ride home, tow for intoxicated drivers

If you have a little too much to drink over the holiday weekend and are not safe to drive, don’t risk it. Just call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO for a free tow home.
The program is provided by AAA and is free for everyone, not just auto club members.
The free ride is offered July 4 - 7.
Although the ride is free, there are some restrictions and guidelines:
• Tow trucks can take up to two people home; if there are more people in your party—you will need to make other arrangements to get home safely.
• You can’t make an appointment to use the Tow to Go service, it is designed to be used as a last resort so have a designated driver before you have your first drink.
• If a person is too intoxicated to be safely transported in a tow truck, AAA may need to contact law enforcement to assist with getting the intoxicated individual a safe ride home.
