AAA Automotive group offering 'Tow to Go'

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

AAA automotive group says ‘tis the season for getting behind the wheel after having too much to drink. Studies show one in five people report rarely or never using a designated driver.

Ellen Smith said she believes it because she's heard these words before:

"No, I can do it. I can drive my car home."

But this holiday season,  AAA Automotive group  is offering a ‘Tow to Go' program December 20th through January 1st. The service will tow your car and take you home, no questions asked.

‘Tow to Go' program manager Joanna Newton said you don't have to be a AAA member, but you do have to be within 10 miles of a tow truck. She also said expect busy phone lines, so make it your back up plan before heading out.

"Always make sure you have a plan ‘A'. While you're deciding what to wear and who to go out with, use that same moment of attention to decide how you're going to get home. Everyone has cell phones. It's easy to put a cab number in your phone."

The program will run in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee and began in 1998. To date, it has given over 22 thousand rides.

For a tow, call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246.
