Tow to Go program available for Cinco de Mayo

By Staff | May 4, 2016

AAA is offering its Tow to Go program this Thursday.

“Whether you are hosting a party or attending one this Cinco de Mayo, AAA wants everyone to get home safe and sound,” a release from the auto club states. “That means choosing a Designated Driver, staying where you are celebrating, or arranging for another form of safe transportation.”

“Impaired driving can ruin more than just a good celebration,” said Amy Stracke, executive director of the ACG Traffic Safety Foundation, a non-profit created by the auto club. “Please plan ahead to make sure you and your loved ones make it home safely.”

For those without a plan, Tow to Go will be there to provide a safe way home. Whether drivers are a AAA member or not, they can call for a Tow to Go ride anytime this Thursday, May 5, through 6 a.m. on Friday, May 6. AAA will then transport you and your vehicle home or somewhere safe within 10 miles.

“The Tow to Go program is an effective way to promote the use of Designated Drivers and help prevent impaired driving,” said Katja Zastrow, vice president of Corporate Social Responsibility for Anheuser-Busch, a sponsor. “We are proud to partner with AAA and their roadside assistance drivers to help keep our roads safe.”

“Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 24,000 impaired drivers from roads across the Southeast,” the auto club release states. “It is designed to be a safety net for motorists who did not plan ahead when drinking away from home on celebratory holidays.”

The program is offered based on the availability of AAA drivers and tow trucks during times of high call volume.
