AAA Offers FREE Tipsy Tow – No Membership Required


aaa-tipsy-tow

AAA’s “Tipsy Tow” initiative will be offering Independence Day partygoers a free ride home tonight in the hope of getting people home safely on many of the biggest party nights of the year.

Anyone who has celebrated Independence Day with a little too much to drink will be able to catch a free ride with Tipsy Tow rather than risking more dangerous ways to get home.

The Tipsy Tow program is open to everyone. You do not need to be an AAA Member to take advantage of this service to the community.

AAA typically offers the service to drinking drivers from 6 p.m. on the holiday to 6 a.m. the following day in Northern California, Nevada and Utah. For specific dates and times, see the list below.

During the period Tipsy Tow is available, drivers, potential passengers, party hosts, bartenders, and restaurant managers can call 800-222-4357 (AAA-HELP) for a free tow home of up to ten miles. Just tell the AAA operator, “I need a Tipsy Tow,” and a truck will be on its way.

The service will provide a one-way ride for the driver and vehicle to the driver’s home. If there are additional passengers who need a ride, they will be taken to the driver’s home as long is there is sufficient room for them to be transported safely in the tow truck. You cannot make a reservation.

AAA provides its Tipsy Tow service for the following holidays:

Independence Day: 6:00 p.m. July 4th – 6:00 a.m. July 5th
Halloween: 6:00 p.m. October 31st – 6:00 a.m. November 1st

Whatever you do, please don’t drink and drive. Take the Pledge! Join AAA’s commitment to driving only while drug and alcohol-free.

AAA offers the following tips to stay safe and keep others safe on the roads:

  • Drive only while drug and alcohol-free
  • Plan ahead and designate a non-drinking driver before a celebration begins
  • Don’t let your friends drive impaired. Take their keys away
  • Never ride in a car with someone who is impaired
  • Plan to take a cab or stay with a friend
