LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – AAA is offering a tow to go service for members and non-members to prevent drunken driving this St. Patrick’s Day.

The goal of The Auto Club Group’s Tow to Go program is to prevent injuries and deaths caused by impaired drivers, according to AAA.

Guidelines to use the service:

  • 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.
  • AAA service vehicles are limiting passengers to one per vehicle, with a face covering, in accordance with established COVID-19 safety protocols. Additional passengers need to make other arrangements.
  • Appointments cannot be scheduled in advance.  The service is a safety net for those who did not plan ahead.  Always choose a designated driver before celebrating.
  • In some situations, AAA may need to make other arrangements to get an impaired person a safe ride home.
  • Tow to Go may not be available in rural areas or during severe weather conditions.

For assistance while you are out, call 855-286-9246.

Tow to Go operates on most major holidays and offers a free ride to impaired drivers who do not have a safe alternative and their vehicles. Over the past two decades, the program has removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from the road. It’s never safe to drive impaired, so be sure to plan ahead.
