Sober Ride Programs for New Years Eve


This year, select AAA locations will be participating in a program called Tipsy Tow. If you are too drunk to drive home, AAA will tow your car and give you a lift home for free.

An official article from AAA states that it is not a national program but more regions are participating this year compared to previous holiday seasons.
