COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – AAA continues to provide a safe ride alternative for those who want to ring in the New Year without driving impaired.

AAA and Bud Light provides their Tow-To-Go service for all of the major holidays where drinks flow. For New Year's, the service will run through 6 a.m. on Jan. 1. The service, provided in Georgia, Tennessee and Florida, can be reached by calling (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246.

In Alabama, Tow-For-Life, also sponsored by AAA, can be utilized to keep drunk drivers off the road. The number for that is 1-800-AAA-HELP, or 1-800-222-4357.

The service is free up to 10 miles and then additional charges are incurred, and the service is available to both AAA and non-AAA members. The service also tows the impaired driver's car home for them.

For more information on safe rides to stop drunken driving, check out the full listings at DrinkingandDriving.org.
