AAA Texas offers free Tipsy Tow Service for New Year’s eve

In an effort to curb drinking and driving during the holidays, AAA Texas is offering its statewide anti-drinking and driving campaign: Tipsy Tow service.
The Tipsy Tow service is available from now until 11:59 p.m. Monday, Jan. 1, 2007.
The Tipsy Tow program, now in its 20th year, is designed to provide drivers with a way to get home safely if they have been drinking. The first 10 miles of the trip are free.
Drivers, holiday hosts and bartenders are urged to dial AAA Texas’ toll free number at 1-800-AAA-HELP to request the Tipsy Tow service. AAA Texas will dispatch a tow truck and the driver is taken, with vehicle in tow, home for free up to 10 miles.
Callers should keep in mind that the destination is limited to the driver’s residence. Reservations are not accepted. Drivers can expect to pay the rate charged by the tow truck contractor for rides farther than 10 miles.
“We recommend motorists have a designated driver, if they plan on drinking,” said Rose Rougeau, spokesperson for AAA Texas. “However, if that is not possible, we suggest motorists utilize our Tipsy Tow service.”
AAA Texas is a member of the American Automobile Association federation of motor clubs and has been serving Texans since 1902. Today, more than a million AAA Texas’ members benefit from the organization’s roadside assistance service, travel agency, financial products, automotive pricing, buying and financing, trip planning services and traffic safety programs.
