Tow to Go service available now through February 1st
Tampa, FL – Whether you are attending or hosting a Super Bowl party, AAA wants everyone to celebrate safely. For those going out this weekend, that means having a Designated Driver.
You can also call a cab or stay where you are celebrating.
Whether you are a AAA member or not, you can call for a Tow to Go ride anytime Friday through Sunday night. AAA will then safely transport you and your vehicle home or somewhere safe within 10 miles.
For Super Bowl party hosts, AAA has the following tips:
- Encourage carpooling with a Designated Driver or have a Designated Driver available to drive guests home as needed
- Don’t force alcoholic beverages on your guests or over-serve them
- Serve protein-rich, starchy foods throughout the evening
- Have plenty of non-alcoholic beverages available
- If you are concerned for someone’s safety and they don’t have a Designated Driver, call them a cab, have them stay overnight, or call Tow to Go
“We are asking all motorists to celebrate the big game in a responsible way,” said Gerry Gutowski, senior vice president, Automotive Services, The Auto Club Group. “Never get behind the wheel impaired and make sure your friends and family do the same.”
Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 23,000 impaired drivers from the roads. The service is designed to be used as a last resort. It is offered based on availability of AAA drivers and tow trucks during times of high call volume. The Auto Club Group Traffic Safety Foundation provides the Tow to Go service because it helps keep all motorists safe from the dangers of drunk driving.
