AAA is once again activating its Tow to Go program in Florida, offering free confidential rides for would-be impaired drivers and their vehicles over the Memorial Day Holiday weekend. This is the 25th year The Auto Club Group has provided the Tow to Go program.
When called upon, The Auto Club Group dispatches a tow truck to transport the driver and vehicle to a safe location within a 10-mile radius for free. Since its inception, Tow to Go has removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from the road.
AAA’s Tow to Go program will be active from 6 p.m. Friday, May 26th to 6 a.m. Tuesday, May 30th.
“By providing this program, AAA gives drivers no excuse for driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol or impairing medications,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “However, we remind people to treat Tow to Go as a last resort. Instead, make advanced plans for a safe ride home, because you do not want to be remembered on Memorial Day as the person who made the fatal mistake of driving impaired.”
To access the free AAA Tow to Go call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246.
Appointments cannot be scheduled in advance to use Tow to Go. It is designed as a safety net for those that did not plan ahead. Always choose a designated driver before celebrating.
In some situations, AAA may need to make other arrangements to get an impaired individual a safe ride home. Tow to Go may not be available in rural areas or during severe weather conditions.
