MIAMI, FL– AAA Auto Club South and Budweiser will protect roadways on Pro Bowl and Super Bowl weekends with the 'Tow to Go' program. Everyone is encouraged to plan ahead before they celebrate and choose a designated driver, however, if football fans find they are unable to get a safe ride home, they can call 'Tow to Go' from January 29—February 7.
'Tow to Go' provides a confidential ride home and tow – FREE of charge – to anyone who may have had too much to drink and needs a ride from a bar or restaurant by simply calling 1-800-AAA-HELP. Services are now offered throughout the states of Florida, Georgia, and
West and Middle Tennessee.
"Football fans who celebrate with alcohol should make the right decision before kick-off and designate a sober driver," said Ed Schatzman, senior vice president of automotive services for AAA Auto Club South."Whether you're hosting a party at home or attending the big game, we encourage everyone to plan ahead for a safe-ride home and consider our Tow to Go service as the life saving thing you can resort to, should all your other plans go awry."
"Those who plan ahead to get home safely after the big game, either by designating a driver in advance or getting a ride from Tow to Go, are part of the winning team," said Kathy Casso, vice president of Corporate Social Responsibility for Anheuser-Busch.
Designated Driver Planning Tips:
- Choose a designated driver who is not going to drink; don't select a driver at the end of the night because he had the least to drink in your group.
- Select your designated driver and turn over your keys before the party begins.
- Program in the numbers of cab companies in your cell phone before going out in case your designated driver doesn't come through for you.
- Call ‘Tow to Go' for a FREE ride home for you and your car if you find yourself unable to get a safe ride home: 1-800-AAA-HELP.
