Friendly Reminder That AAA Offers FREE ‘Tipsy Tows’ For Intoxicated Drivers on The 4th of July

July 4, 2015 by Brian Champlin

Did you know that the Automobile Club of Southern California offers a complimentary ride and vehicle tow up to seven miles from the point of pickup to drivers who have consumed alcohol on New Year’s Eve and the Fourth of July?

It’s called Tipsy Tow and it’s available to AAA members and non-members, simply by calling 1-800-400-4222 and mentioning “Tipsy Tow”.

Tipsy Tows will be available in 13 Southern California counties (including Los Angeles) starting at 6:00pm Friday and lasting until 11:59pm on Saturday.

Keep in mind the tows are for drivers only (it’s not a cab service) and for any tow over seven miles regular AAA tow rates apply.

And remember if you plan on doing a fair bit of drinking today, make sure you think ahead:

  • Designate a driver.
  • Use METRO or other public transit.
  • Uber/Lyft/Taxi/Rideshare it on the way home
  • Make sure you eat enough!
  • Give yourself a couple hours from when you finish your last drink until you decide to head home.

Above all, just be smart!

Happy 4th of July!
