AAA to offer free rides Memorial Day
(BCN) - AAA is offering free "Tipsy Tow" services to celebrants this Monday for the Memorial Day holiday.
The service will run from 6 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday and is available to anyone, not just AAA members.
"If your plans involve alcohol, plan ahead for a safe ride home," AAA Northern California spokesman Mike Blasky said in a statement.
"If those plans fall through, please don't get behind the wheel.Call AAA and we'll get you home safely."
Drivers, passengers, party hosts, bartenders and restaurant managers can call (800) AAA-HELP (222-4357) and provide the driver's name, home address, phone number and their pick-up location.
AAA will send out a tow truck and give the driver, the driver's vehicle and one passenger a free 10-mile tow and ride home.
For distances beyond 10 miles, a standard towing rate will apply.
