AAA Offers Free Towing Service for Cinco de Mayo

Posted: Updated:
AAA says it is offering free towing service this Cinco de Mayo to prevent people from driving while drunk in Nevada.

AAA will offer the service to drinking drivers from 6 p.m. on May 5th to 6 a.m. on May 6th in Nevada. Drivers, potential passengers, party hosts, bartenders, and restaurant managers can call 800-222-4357 (AAA-HELP) for a free tow home of up to ten miles. Just tell the AAA operator, “I need a Tipsy Tow,” and a truck will be on its way.

AAA estimates that a first time DUI conviction in Nevada can cost up to $12,000 in fines, penalties, restitution, legal fees, and added insurance expenses. You can’t put a price tag on a crash that causes an injury or death.

“Many people enjoy getting into the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, which tends to involve plenty of celebrating,” said Cynthia Harris, spokesperson for AAA Nevada. “If you’ve been drinking alcohol, don’t get behind the wheel. Give AAA a call and we’ll make sure you get home safely.”
