(CBS DETROIT) — As Michiganders hit the road for Memorial Day, AAA is making sure roads are safe by bringing back their free “Tow To Go” program for those who may have a little too much to drink.

Tow to Go operates on most major holidays and offers a free ride to drivers and their vehicles who do not have a safe alternative. AAA says the program has removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from the road over the past two decades.

Important Tow to Go Guidelines:

  • Free confidential ride available to AAA Members and non-members.
  • The AAA tow truck transports the vehicle and driver home or somewhere safe within 10 miles.
  • AAA service vehicles are limiting passengers to one (1) per vehicle, with face mask/covering, in accordance with established COVID-19 safety protocols. Additional passengers need to make other arrangements.
  • Appointments cannot be scheduled in advance to use Tow to Go. It is designed as a safety net for those that did not plan ahead. Always choose a designated driver before celebrating.
  • In some situations, AAA may need to make other arrangements to get an impaired individual a safe ride home.
  • Tow to Go may not be available in rural areas or during severe weather conditions.
