As AAA prepares to assist over 378,000 drivers nationwide with car trouble during Memorial Day weekend, it also aims to keep impaired drivers off the road with its Tow to Go program. The Auto Club Group is activating Tow to Go in Florida, offering a confidential safe ride for would-be impaired drivers and their vehicles.

For more than 25 years, Tow to Go has removed nearly 30,000 impaired drivers from U.S. roads. When someone calls Tow to Go, a tow truck transports the vehicle and its owner to a safe location within a 10-mile radius. This service is free, whether the caller is a AAA member or not.

Tow to Go will be active from 6 p.m. Friday, May 24, to 6 a.m. Tuesday, May 28. Free confidential rides are available to both AAA members and non-members. Mark Jenkins, spokesman for AAA – The Auto Club Group, emphasized, “By providing this program, AAA gives drivers no excuse for driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or impairing medications. 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.”
