AAA offers ‘Tow to Go’ through the holidays

POSTED: December 19, 2013 4:04 p.m.

One in three consumers always use a designated driver after drinking, yet one in five reported rarely or never using one, shows AAA Consumer Pulse survey. To help make sure everyone has a safe ride home, AAA and Bud Light will offer the Tow to Go program for the holidays.

The program is designed to help discourage an intoxicated driver from getting behind the wheel. Anyone, AAA member or not, can call for a Tow to Go ride, Dec. 20-Jan. 1.

“Around Christmas and New Year’s Eve, calls for Tow to Go have historically spiked,” said Gerry Gutowski, senior vice president of automotive services for The Auto Club Group. “AAA has always played a critical role each holiday weekend by protecting motorists on our roadways, however, it is everyone’s responsibility to make good decisions and always choose a designated driver if you have been drinking.”

In the past year, consumers reported several popular ways to thank their designated drivers, ranging from paying for dinner to buying a tank of gas.

“We’re pleased to partner with AAA and their roadside service drivers to keep our roads safe during the holiday season,” said Kathy Casso, vice president of corporate social responsibility for Anheuser-Busch. “There’s no better gift any one can give than being a designated driver, and thanks to Tow to Go, anyone who may have had too much to drink can get a safe ride home during the holidays.”

For a Tow to Go ride, call (855) 2TOW2GO or (855) 286-9246.
