More than 2 million Floridians are expected to take some kind of Fourth of July road trip and, even if you're taking just a short drive, the AAA Auto Club wants to make sure you get back home safely.
They are again providing the Tow to Go program in Florida through 6 a.m. on Thursday, July 5th.
You're advised to make some sort of plan, such as using a designated driver or staying where you're partying.
Otherwise, you can call 855-2-TOW-2-GO for a free ride home for you and your vehicle.
Since 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from roads across the Southeast and the Midwest. The Auto Club Group Traffic Safety Foundation and Budweiser provide this program to prevent impaired drivers from getting behind the wheel and risking the lives of other motorists. Tow to Go also enables AAA and Budweiser to remind the public to always plan ahead when celebrating with alcohol. That means choosing a Designated Driver, staying where you are celebrating, or arranging for another form of safe transportation.
Free confidential ride available to AAA Members and non-members
The AAA tow truck transports the vehicle and driver home or somewhere safe within 10 miles
Tow to Go provided in Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, North Dakota, Nebraska, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Indiana (Fort Wayne and South Bend only)
Important Tow to Go guidelines:
Tow trucks can usually transport up to two people. If there are more people in your party, you will need to make other arrangements to get them home safely.
You can’t make an appointment to use Tow to Go. It is designed as a safety net for those that did not plan ahead. Always choose a Designated Driver before you have your first drink.
In some situations, AAA may need to make other arrangements to get an impaired individual a safe ride home.
Tow to Go may not be available in rural areas or during severe weather conditions.
