AAA’s Tipsy Tow program comes in handy on major holidays when you’ve been drinking and need to get both yourself and your car home. A tow truck will take you up to 10 miles for free and you don’t even need to be a AAA member to use it.
Here’s more details courtesy of AAA:
Don’t lose your freedom on Independence Day. If you have too much fun during your 4th of July celebration and don’t have a safe ride, call AAA for a free tow home.
“The only flashing lights you’ll want to see this 4th of July are the fireworks in the sky — not in your rearview mirror,” said Mike Blasky, spokesman for AAA Northern California. “Everyone wants to have fun on their holiday, but don’t risk a DUI or a potentially deadly crash because of impaired driving.”
AAA’s Tipsy Tow service will start at 6 PM on Tuesday, July 4 and will run through 6 AM on Wednesday, July 5.
– Call 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357)

– Provide the driver’s name, home address, phone number and vehicle/driver location.
The service does not include roadside assistance. Visit AAA.com for more information
