Holiday safe ride program offers free tow home

AAA reminds everyone to stay safe this year by designating a sober driver, calling a cab or arranging to stay with a friend before kicking off your Holiday celebrations!

As a last resort, AAA Texas will offer a free community service called Tipsy Tow which aims to keep drinking drivers off the road.

Many AAA clubs offer safe ride services for members and non-members. Click here to view map for New Year’s program information only.

Call 1-800-222-4357 or 1-800-AAA-HELP for a free tow home home of up to 10 miles.

Callers simply request a Tipsy Tow and will receive the free tow and ride home. A regular AAA Texas-contracted roadside service truck will be dispatched. For rides more than 10 miles, drivers should expect to pay the rate charged by the tow truck contractor. The passenger and tow truck driver should agree in advance what the excess mileage charges will be and the method of payment, prior to the tow.

You do not have to be a AAA member to use the Tipsy Tow service however it is only for a one-way, one-time ride for a driver and tow for that driver’s vehicle.

Program begins Monday, 12/31 at 6pm and ends Tuesday, 1/1 at 6am in Texas.
