AAA Offers Free Towing for St. Patrick's Day

If you've had a few too many green beers later tonight, keep those keys in your pocket and call AAA, which is offering free towing tonight for impaired drivers.

The company's "Tow to Go" program is offered throughout Florida and Georgia on big drinking holidays such as New Year's and St. Pat's.

In a news release, the company said:

Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 23,000 intoxicated drivers from the roads. The service is designed to be used as a last resort. It is offered based on availability of AAA drivers and tow trucks during times of high call volume.

Tow truck operators on duty for AAA will take both driver and car anywhere in a ten-mile radius from the pickup spot. No need to be a AAA member to take advantage of this service-- it's free for both members and non-members. Call 855-2-TOW-2-GO or 855-286-9246.
