AAA Offers Free Tipsy Tows on Fourth of July Weekend

Posted: Updated:
AAA is offering free rides home to people who drink a little too much on the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

AAA will offer the service to drinking drivers from 6 p.m. on July 4 until 6 a.m. on July 5 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 10 miles. Just tell the AAA operator, “I need a Tipsy Tow,” and a truck will be on its way.

“Many people enjoy getting into the spirit of The Fourth of July, which tends to involve plenty of celebrating,” said Buck Lucas, VP Automotive Services, AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah. “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.”

The service will provide a one-way ride for the driver and vehicle to the driver’s home. If there are additional passengers who need a ride, they will be taken to the driver’s home as long as there is sufficient room for them to be transported safely in the tow truck. You cannot make a reservation for this service.
