COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

If you find yourself without a designated driver on Fourth of July, a free program is being offered to help keep you and other drivers safe.

The American Automobile Association and Bud-Light are offering Tow-To-Go as a last resort for drivers who need a safe ride home this weekend.

An AAA survey revealed that more than one in five consumers say they rarely or never use a designated driver when they're drinking away from home. But AAA and Bud Light are strongly encouraging drivers to plan ahead before celebrating this weekend.

If you do find yourself without a safe ride home, call AAA for a confidential ride to a safe location, as long as it's within 10 miles of where you are. The ride is free for everyone, not just AAA members.

The best part about the program is the service will take both the driver and their car home. 

This program is not offered in Alabama but if you're in Georgia and need a ride call 855-2-TOW-2-GO.
