AAA Texas is offering its free Tipsy Tow service during the New Year’s Eve holiday from 6 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday to help remove drinking drivers from the road.

Motorists, bartenders, restaurant managers, party hosts or passengers of a drinking driver may call 1-800-222-4357 for a free tow home of up to 10 miles. Callers simply tell AAA Texas operators, “I need a Tipsy Tow,” to receive the free tow and ride home. A regular AAA Texas-contracted roadside service truck will be dispatched to transport both the driver and the vehicle.

The service excludes rides for passengers, is restricted to a one-way, one-time ride for the driver and the destination is limited to the driver’s residence. Reservations are not accepted. For rides farther than 10 miles, drivers can expect to pay the rate charged by the tow truck contractor, according to a AAA Texas news release.
