AAA Arizona is offering its ‘Tipsy tow' services for the upcoming Christmas holiday.
For those who indulge in a little too much ‘holiday cheer' AAA's Tipsy tow service will be available from 6 p.m. December 24 through 6 a.m. December 25.
How Tipsy Tow works:
Call 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357) between the 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. deadline; state that a ‘tipsy tow' is needed, then provide the driver's name, home address, phone number and vehicle/driver location.
Tipsy tow provides a free 10 mile tow and ride home for those unable to make it on their own, and who do not have a designated driver. Mileage beyond the ten mile limit is charged to the motorist at a standard towing rate. The service does not include roadside assistance.
"The holidays are a time when people tend to overindulge," said Linda Gorman, director of communications and public affairs for AAA Arizona, in a recent news release. "As a leader in driver safety, AAA urges drivers to plan for a safe ride home before celebrating. If that ride falls through, call AAA for a Tipsy Tow."
