DETROIT (WWJ) – There’s a joint effort to provide free confidential rides over the holidays. It’s called Tow to Go.
So, if you’re planning on drinking this holiday week — plan on getting a designated driver, using alternative transportation like Uber and Lyft — or there’s another option. Tow to Go.
The Auto Club Group Traffic Safety Foundation and Budweiser provide a AAA tow truck driver to tow you and your car to ensure that you get home safely.
“Tow To Go is one of those alternatives – let’s face it, it’s the last-ditch effort for you, it’s free and it’s going to be safe for you,” says Wayne County Undersheriff Dan Pfannes. “It will get you and your car home – what can you ask for this is a wonderful gift that is being given by AAA and Budweiser and we thank them for it.”
Ro Katrak, senior vice president with AAA, says there’s a lot of rear-end collisions during this time of the season.
“Rear-end crashes, more often than not – involve distracted driving,” says Katrak.
AAA says that since 1998 they’ve helped more than 24,000 impaired drivers home safely.
The service is free. Just call 855-2-TOW-2-GO.
