AAA and Budweiser urge everyone to plan ahead if they are celebrating Halloween with alcohol. That means choosing a Designated Driver, staying where they are celebrating, or arranging for another form of safe transportation.
“Halloween presents a unique danger above all other holidays because many children are out on the roads after dark” said Rose White, public affairs director for AAA-The Auto Club Group. “If you’re going to be on the road, look out for little ones. If you’re going to be drinking, don’t put their lives at risk by getting behind the wheel.”
For those that don’t plan ahead, Tow to Go will be there to provide a safe way home. AAA members and non-members can call for a Tow to Go ride anytime Thursday, October 31st through 6 a.m. on Friday, November 1st. AAA will then safely transport them and their vehicle home or somewhere safe within 10 miles.
Since its inception in 1998, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from roads across the Southeast and Midwest. It is designed to be a safety net for motorists who did not plan ahead when drinking away from home on celebratory holidays. It is offered based on the availability of AAA drivers and tow trucks during times of high call volume.
