AAA Offers Free Towing All Weekend for Labor Day

AAA knows what you did last summer. I mean, not specifically you, but all of us. Red-blooded Americans. Every year, many of us use Labor Day as an excuse to not only abstain from work but to become pretty much incapacitated.

While there's a drunk driving fatality every 51 minutes in the U.S., according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, that number plummets to 34 minutes during Labor Day Weekend. So for the 16th year in a row, AAA is offering free Tow-to-Go service for anyone who is too intoxicated to drive over the next three days.

So if you've had a few too many and face a trek home that's ten miles or fewer, call 855- 2-TOW-2-GO. There's nothing to be embarrassed about. More than 23,000 people have used the free service since its inception. You'll be magically delivered to your doorstep, and you won't even have to worry about getting your car in the morning (or more realistically, the afternoon.)

And it goes without saying but, if you find yourself in the same situation more than ten miles from home, just call a cab. Your car will still be in front of the bar tomorrow, right where you left it.
