AAA and Bud Light are bringing back their free tow program this year in an effort to keep intoxicated drivers from behind the wheel.

Since 1998, the Tow to Go program has helped more than 22,000 drivers. The service will give a confidential ride and tow within a 10-mile radius to a safe location from today through Jan. 1 in Georgia, Florida and Tennessee.

According to a press release, the tow program is intended to be a last resort, and all drivers are encouraged to arrange for a designated driver before drinking alcohol.

“Around Christmas and New Year’s Eve calls for Tow to Go have historically spiked,” said Gerry Gutowski Sr., vice president of AAA Automotive Services.

To receive the service, call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO or (855) 286-9246.
