ORLANDO, Fla. — AAA’s “Tow to Go” program is back for the Thanksgiving holiday.
The program serves as the last line of defense to keep impaired drivers off the road.
AAA said Tow to Go has removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from the road since 1998.
The service will be available Wednesday through Monday in select locations.
A tow truck will transport an impaired driver and their vehicle to a safe place within a 10-mile radius. The service is free, but should be treated as a backup plan.
“AAA is proud to bring back this life-saving program this Thanksgiving,” said Mark Jenkins, AAA spokesman. “Now as millions of Americans get behind the wheel this holiday weekend, none of them will have an excuse for driving impaired. However, we still strongly encourage people to plan ahead and identify a safe ride home, and treat Tow to Go as their last resort.”
Those who need the service can call 855-286-9246.
