Feel Good Friday - AAA Tipsy Tow

It's the last Feel Good Friday of 2018 and time for the traditional end of year post on the AAA Tipsy Tow program!

Tipsy Tow is a service AAA offers to drivers who go out on New Year's Eve and get too intoxicated to drive back home.

They do this both to educate drivers on the dangers of impaired driving and to reduce traffic-related crashes and injuries.

The rules are simple: call 1-800-AAA-HELP between 6:00 p.m. Dec 31 and 6:00 a.m. Jan 1 for a free ride to your home or a hotel and vehicle tow of up to 10 miles.

Anyone can take advantage of this service, you don't need to be a AAA member. If you're hosting a party, you can call this number for a friend who needs a tow.

While New Year's Eve is the upcoming holiday when you might need to call for a Tipsy Tow, this service is offered from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. on the evenings of all the following holidays:
  • Super Bowl Sunday
  • St. Patrick's Day
  • 4/20 (this is AAA in California after all)
  • Cinco de Mayo
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Eve
  • New Years' Eve
If you know you're going to be celebrating a holiday with libations, your best bet is to use public transportation, call a ride share service or host the party yourself. But, if you find yourself with a car you're unable to drive, AAA has you covered.

Are you so excited about this you want to show your love on social media? Then like the AAA Facebook page and follow them on Twitter @AAAnews.

Thanks for following another year of Feel Good Friday and here's to many more in 2019. Happy New Year!
