(RUTHERFORD COUNTY, TN) We are now officially in the largest travel time of the year. When you add winter weather to some highways and interstates, the end results are chaos on the roads as well as problems of getting to airports for safe departures and arrivals. Christmas through New Year brings AAA's popular Tow to Go program in Tennessee and other select states.
“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 Megan Cooper, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “We’ll dispatch a truck to take you and your vehicle to a safe location within a 10-mile radius.”
It’s important to note, AAA service technicians expect to rescue more than 937,000 drivers with car trouble during the upcoming holidays. So treat Tow to Go as a last resort. Plan ahead and identify a designated driver or ride sharing service before you party.
Tow to Go is active from 6 p.m. Friday, December 22nd to 6 a.m. Tuesday, January 2nd.
Available in FL, GA, IA, MI, ND, NE, TN, WI, CO (Denver), NC (Charlotte), IN (Fort Wayne/South Bend).
