AAA to offer free towing to keep impaired drivers off the road

The Auto Club Group, also known as AAA, will offer to transport cars during the holidays to limit impaired drivers on the streets, starting this Friday, officials said.

“If you’re faced with the decision of driving impaired, put down those keys and pick up the phone to call Tow to Go,” said Brian Ortner, spokesman for AAA.

AAA will dispatch a truck cost-free to take a driver and their car to a safe location within a 10-mile radius, Ortner said.

The Tow to Go program will start on Friday at 6 p.m. and end on Jan. 2 at 6 a.m., officials said.

The program should be treated as a last resort, officials said.

Officials expect AAA service technicians to assist more than 935,000 drivers during the holiday season.

Those who need to use the program can call 855-286-9246 for assistance.
