Putting in hot deals because this is easily a $50 value. Hope all you fellow FW'ers have a great 2010 and a continued safe 2009.

If you wind up drinking too much at a party when you were supposed to drive home, the American Automobile Association hopes you will call its Tow To Go program at 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357).

"The program is very unique because it is one of the few programs that comes and gets the driver and their car and gets them both home safely," AAA spokeswoman Joanna Newton said. "What's even more unique is that it is free of charge, completely confidential and you do not have to be a AAA member to use the service."

Still working on finding exact locations this will be available.

Here are the locations in the south:
Coverage Areas Tow to Go program is available throughout Florida and in Metro Atlanta, Savannah, and Metro Nashville.
Tipsy Tow - Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, California


...and probably many others...cheers!

Great find, thanks for sharing.

Nice!!! Next time my car breaks im just gonna go get hammered and call AAA for free towing home. I already have roadside asst from infiniti, but they will only bring the car to the dealer, which is 40 miles from home (and i dont like to let them touch the car anyway)

This is the exact service that The League (FX) jokes about in I think Episode 5 or so.

Auto Club Offers "Tipsy Tow" for New Year's Holiday
(LOS ANGELES, Dec. 29, 2009) — To help reduce DUI statistics by keeping drinking drivers off the road, the Automobile Club of Southern California is offering its free Tipsy Tow service during the New Year’s holiday. The service is available at 6 p.m. Thursday, New Year’s Eve, through 11:59 p.m. Friday, Jan. 1, 2010. Tipsy Tow is available in the 13 Southern California counties served by the Auto Club.

In East Asia this kind of thing is standard, but entrepreneurial. You call up the small driver business, they come to wherever you are, drive you, your car, and whoever is in it home. Cost is usually about $10.

We have this in South Dakota, a company called "Scooters" they have collapsable motorcycles that they but in your trunk then drive your car home for you, take out the scooter and drive to the next customer.

For NorCAL.

This is pure marketing genius at work. It cost $48.50 per tow that is done. The average drunk driving insurance claim cost the insurance company $8,743.00.

AAA views this as a service to the community but also if we can prevent 1 drunk driving accident insurance claim, it saves the company $8,743. 180 free tows’ is the same as 1 drunk driving insurance claim. Oh and it might save a life or two.

some lady recently in South Dakota set like the record for blowing a DUI of like .700, she should have been legally dead.

NO A GOOD DEAL! THEY ONLY TOWN UP TO 5 MILES.

from Tallahassee News

"Getting behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol can have major consequences.
That's why AAA Auto Group South and Anheuser Busch has teamed up to get everyone home safe this holiday season."
...
...
"Tow-To-Go" is available for all major holidays throughout the year.

"The last day will be Midnight on January first and will reopen February 3rd for Super Bowl Weekend."

I called and they said that they would "get you and your car home" (sounded like drive it) up to 15 miles from the point of pickup.


That is in South Dakota anyways, and specifically in the cities of Rapid City, Sioux Falls, and Mitchell (no other areas).

Repost Sorry

Do they tuck you in and leave you a barf bag?

Everyone give the OP some GREEN. A generous, thoughtful deal that may just save the life of someone you love. Priceless. DOUBLE GREEN. hic.

Ah, if I had a dollar for everytime I got good and drunk.

TYTIE
wellllll, drunk, in any event lol

I'm sorry I wouldn't let AAA touch my BMW,

I also don't drink, so I'm going to find a way to abuse this.

AAA never touches your overpriced BMW, the contracted towing company does the work.

Now I need to find a way to tow my car, I wouldn't let the contracted towing company touch my Lexus.

would this be a good opportunity to pretend to be drunk and get a free tow for my broken down car to my mechanic's garage?

I wonder if AA would match this offer....

I LOVE YOU MAN!

WOOOOOOOOOOOO!

IamN41 said: I LOVE YOU MAN!

You're drunk, but I love you too Borat....happy 2010!

I could have used this when I lived in Savannah on 64th St. A tow from downtown would have been in the range.

/old and in hotel in SLC, UT tonight watching football. No longer a whipper snapper.

I wonder if they will pick up anyone who is drunk to the point they will vomit anytime...

This is a great service and PR for AAA
If it saves one life of an innocent person driving to work etc. Think of the pain it will save a family

so did anyone use the free tow?
