AAA Tipsy Tow available for Halloween

We all know drinking and driving doesn't mix...Never has, and never will! And to me, buzzed driving is no different! But for (Northern) California, Nevada, & Utah residents, AAA is once again offering a Tipsy Tow to EVERYONE! You do not need to have a AAA membership to get this service. All you need to do is call their number (1-800-222-4357) and let the Operator know "I need a Tipsy Tow". WHAT IS A TIPSY TOW? A Tipsy Tow is an up to 10 mile tow that AAA will provide ANYONE from 6 p.m - 6 a.m. on certain nights. One of those nights is Halloween. During the time that a Tipsy Tow is available, drivers, passengers, bartenders, restaurant managers, and partyhosts can call and request one. There is NO CHARGE! The tow includes: a one way tow of the driver and the vehicle to the driver's home. As for additional passengers, they can take them also, providing there is sufficient room for the tow truck driver to safely transport them as well, think seat belts. They do not take reservations, so you can't call early. STILL NOT QUITE CONVINCED & THINK YOU CAN HANDLE IT? Read these facts: "According to a recent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study, 20 percent of all motorists in the past year have driven a motor vehicle within two hours of drinking alcohol." "About 13% of the total population has done so in the past 30 days." "It takes only one or two drinks to impair vision, steering, braking, judgment and reaction time." "AAA estimates that a first time DUI conviction can cost up to $12,000 in fines, penalties, restitution, legal fees, and added insurance expenses." So now that you know it's available, and it's gonna cost you big time if you drink and drive. Give them a just might be saving someone's life at the same time!
