AAA's 'Tipsy Tow' offers free rides and tows on New Year's Eve


EUREKA, Calif. -- AAA's annual 'Tipsy Tow' program is offering free rides and tows on New Year's Eve to help prevent drunk driving on the holiday.

The program will provide free one-way rides and tows for drivers and their vehicles of up to 10 miles to the driver's residence. Extra passengers are welcome if the tow truck has room.

The Northern California service runs from 6 p.m. Saturday, December 31 to 6 a.m. Sunday, January 1.

The kicker - the program is available to everyone, not just AAA members.

AAA has offered the program for two decades. It's all part of an effort to take drunk drivers off the streets and reduce car wrecks, injuries and death.

To get a free ride or tow, call (800) AAA-HELP.
