Having a plan to celebrate safely doesn't require the luck of the Irish. Whether you host a St. Patrick's Day Party or attend one, AAA wants everyone to get home safe and sound. That means having a Designated Driver, calling a cab or staying where you are celebrating.
"Impaired driving can ruin more than just a good celebration," said Amy Stracke, Managing Director, Traffic Safety Advocacy for AAA - The Auto Club Group and Executive Director of the ACG Traffic Safety Foundation. "Please plan ahead to make sure you and your loved ones make it home safely."
For those with no other option, Tow to Go will be there to provide a safe way home. Whether you are a AAA member or not, you can call for a Tow to Go ride anytime this Thursday, March 17th through 6 a.m. on Friday, March 18th. AAA will then safely transport you and your vehicle home or somewhere safe within 10 miles.
"The Tow to Go program is an effective way to promote the use of Designated Drivers and help prevent impaired driving," said Katja Zastrow, Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility for Anheuser-Busch. "We are proud to partner with AAA and their roadside assistance drivers to help keep our roads safe."
Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 24,000 impaired drivers from roads across the Southeast. The service is designed to be a safety net for motorists who did not plan ahead when drinking away from home. It is offered based on the availability of AAA drivers and tow trucks during times of high call volume. AAA's Auto Club Group Traffic Safety Foundation provides the Tow to Go service because it helps keep all motorists safe from the dangers of impaired driving.
