At various times of year (e.g., between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, Super Bowl Sunday,St. Patrick’s Day) the American Automobile Association (AAA) clubs in various states arrange with local towers to provide a free “Tipsy Tow” service, under which motorists who feel they have had too much to drink to drive safely can call a toll-free number and get a tow truck to deliver them and their vehicles home safely. This service is available to everyone, including non-AAA members. 
Despite what is stated in the widely circulated Facebook post cited above, although this service is offered in a number of states, it is not available nationwide. Some state AAA branches offer it, and others don’t; in some states, it is only available in particular areas (and may be limited to certain hours of the day). AAA advises calling them before New Year’s Eve and verifying they are operating this service in your state.

For more information about whether Holiday Safe Ride Program services are offered in your area, visit the Newsroom section of the AAA web site, call the AAA at the phone number listed above (1-800-AAA-HELP), or find and contact your local AAA office through the web site.
