Tow To Go In Effect For July 4th Weekend

Tampa (CBS Tampa Bay) – This 4th of July holiday weekend, the AAA Auto Club has teamed up with Budweiser for their ‘Tow to Go’ program which offers a confidential ride home to driver’s who have a few too many to drink.

The tow and ride are both free of charge over the holiday weekend, and you don’t even have to be a AAA member.

The Tow to Go program will provide safe rides home to intoxicated drivers July 4th – 7th.

“If you plan to celebrate this holiday weekend, we strongly suggest that you have a plan for a designated driver before you have your first drink,” said Gerry Gutowski, Sr. Vice President, Automotive Services, The Auto Club Group.

“The Tow to Go program is an effective way to promote the use of designated drivers and help prevent drunk driving,” said Kathy Casso, vice president of Corporate Social Responsibility for Anheuser-Busch. “We’re pleased to partner with AAA and their roadside assistance drivers to help keep our roads safe.”

Triple-A says since its inception in 1998, ‘Tow to Go’ has kept more than 23,000 intoxicated drivers off the roads and saved twice as many lives since it was designed to protect everyone on the roads, not just the intoxicated driver.

The number to call is (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246.

Important Tow To Go Guidelines:

  • It’s a confidential local ride within a 10-mile radius to a safe location
  • You can’t make an appointment to use the Tow to Go service, it is designed to be used as a last resort so have a designated driver before you have your first drink.
  • If a person is too intoxicated to be safely transported in a tow truck, AAA may need to contact law enforcement to assist with getting the intoxicated individual a safe ride home.
  • The AAA tow truck takes the vehicle and the driver home.
