AAA is once again teaming up with Budweiser, offering its popular Tow To Go program from Christmas Eve through New Year’s Day this year.

As a last resort, Floridians who have had too much to drink can call 1-855-2 TOW 2 GO (855-286-9246) and a tow truck will pick up them and their vehicle.

The service is available within a 10-mile radius, and the tow truck can carry up to two people home.

The program to keep intoxicated drivers from getting behind the wheel is available to both AAA members and non-members.

AAA’s W. D. Williams says there is no reason to drive drunk this holiday season, “If you find yourself out at a holiday party and maybe you’ve had more to drink than you feel comfortable driving home on, give AAA a call. We’ll come take you and your car home, no charge.”

As the Tow To Go service is designed to be used as a last resort, AAA says planning ahead and choosing a designated driver is still the best option.

Since the program’s inception in 1998, more than 23,000 drunk drivers have been kept off the roads.
