TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The American Automobile Association expects about 2 million people to travel by car during the holiday season in Arizona. With so many drivers on the road, authorities want to remind drivers to take precautions to stay safe on the roads.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety reminds drivers not to drink and drive, wear a seatbelt and get enough rest.

Local and state law enforcement agencies plan to conduct DUI checkpoints throughout Southern Arizona to catch drivers who drink and drive.

During the 2012 Christmas holiday season (December 21 through December 26), 134 people died in drunk driving crashes nationally, according to Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

AAA offers limited towing service during the holidays as a last resort for people who may need help getting home after drinking. Tipsy Tow is a free one-way ride tow home for up to 10 miles.

The Tipsy Tow service will be available from 6pm December 24 to 6am December 25.

For anyone who may need a tipsy tow, call 1-800-AAA-HELP.
