AAA and Bud Light will help protect motorists for St. Patrick’s Day weekend with the Tow to Go program. The Auto Club Group has provided the Tow to Go service for more than 15 years because it allows AAA to protect the freedom and mobility of motorists on our roadways. The program’s mission is to discourage an intoxicated driver from getting behind the wheel and risking the lives and safety of other motorists. Anyone, AAA member or not, can call for a Tow to Go ride through March 17.
To get Tow to Go from AAA, call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246
Nearly two in five (41 percent) consumers think people are more likely to use a designated driver on St. Patrick’s Day weekend, with a majority (56 percent) reporting that they think people tend to drink more alcohol when compared to other holidays.
“This program is invaluable because it brings attention to the dangers of drinking and driving beyond just giving an intoxicated driver a safe ride home on the holiday weekend,” said Gerry Gutowski, senior vice president, Automotive Services, The Auto Club Group. “St. Patrick’s Day is on a Sunday this year so people may be inclined to celebrate throughout the weekend and they need to have a plan for a designated driver before they have their first drink.”
“The Tow to Go program is an effective way to promote the use of designated drivers and help prevent drunk driving,” said Kathy Casso, vice president of Corporate Social Responsibility for Anheuser-Busch. “We’re pleased to partner with AAA and their emergency roadside service drivers to help keep our roads safe.”
Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 22,000 intoxicated drivers from the roads. The service is designed to be used as a last resort. It is offered based on availability of AAA drivers and tow trucks during times of high call volume.
